Great Decisions: Mideast Update

March 12 @ 10:00 am

Topic Leader: Tyler Beebe

We’ll start by looking at Iran’s intensifying rivalry with the Saudis as well as Tehran’s reaction to the U.S.’s rejection of the nuclear deal. Then we will focus on Saudi Prince Mohammed bin Sultan’s flawed efforts to expand Saudi influence and try to predict what fate may lie ahead for the Syria that barely avoided disintegration. Finally, we’ll assess Russia’s chances for bringing stability to post-ISIS Syria and the complex interests of Turkey, Israel, Iran and other players as the U.S. retreats from the scene.

Great Decisions meets for intelligent, non-partisan, seminar-style discussions of foreign affairs topics on selected Tuesdays at 10:15 am in the Garden Room on the accessible lower level of the library. All are welcome. For more information, contact Harry Stanton at
