Understanding the Middle East

As news from the Middle East floods the airwaves, we are often overwhelmed by the sheer horror of what we see and are left wondering how did it come to this? How did something called "ISIS" emerge to control so much territory and become such a threat to peace and stability in the Middle East? What happened to the so-called Arab Spring? The complexity of the ever-present crisis in the Middle East will be examined within its historical context in this keynote presentation.
