The Theme and Goals

In a region of changing stability, the Middle East countries have experienced a decade of abundant intervening forces. Global powers and aspirants for regional hegemony are shaping and re-shaping axes, networks and influences. The goal of this project is to map these changing networks in the post-Arab Spring Middle East, and to analyze the motives and influence of the involved powers. The normalization agreements between the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Israel are a regional game-changer that raises many questions on their ramifications. One of the main points for discussion is the impact of the Abraham Accords on the wider region. We seek to propose a novel point of view on the foreign policy interests of various powerful actors engaged in the Middle East and to discuss their motivations that in the aftermath of the agreements. These actors include the US, China, Russia, Turkey, Iran, Israel, Saudi Arabia, and the UAE.

The Workshop’s Plan
