Saudi Regional Interventions and their Impacts

3 October 2016 (Mon), 5:30 PM - 7:00 PM
At Saga Lecture Theatre 1

Professor Badawi Al-Rasheed from the Middle East Institute (MEI) at the National University of Singapore will give a talk on how the rivalry between Saudi Arabia and Iran has destabilised the Arab region since the uprisings of 2011, and impact of subsequent Saudi interventions at the domestic, regional, and global levels. Prof. Al-Rasheed will map the different responses to the Arab uprisings (e.g. Containment, counter-revolution, and revolution) and assess the key reasons behind the recent Saudi interventions in Yemen and Syria.
