The Most Dangerous Region in the World? The Middle East


It's an area we all watch, wonder and worry about, because there's always a clash, often a crisis. Tribe against tribe, country against country, religion against religion, my bomb vs. your bomb. Governments destroy their own cities; drop bombs on their own citizens. Peace talks never begin, or start one day and disintegrate the next. These are conflicts we address and soften with labels like "Arab Spring," "popular uprisings," or "peace initiatives," but should we?

The 2014 ILEAD Summer Lecture Series, which will treat this extremely important and timely topic, starts Wednesday morning July 9 and runs for 7 weeks to August 20. An impressive collection of experts will help us understand why the Middle East is the way it is, and what the future is likely to hold in store. Mark your calendars now. You'll not want to miss it.

Series details and ticket information will be available soon.
