CIC National Capital (Ottawa): A Conversation on the Middle East with Dr. Michael Atallah (Online event)
September 29, 2021 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm EDTFree
The CIC National Capital Branch’s Middle East Study Group invites you to its next online event during which Dr. Michael Atallah will review some of the major developments in the Near East and will focus on some of the new geopolitical dynamics that are emerging as a result of US withdrawal from the region. Specifically, Dr. Atallah will address one of the key questions: stepping back from the Near East – can the USA successfully recalibrate its approach to the Asia-Pacific region? How could developments in the Middle East jeopardize America’s delayed pivot towards managing China?
Michael Atallah is a Senior Middle East Analyst at the Privy Council Office with a specialization on the Levant and the Persian Gulf. Atallah has also worked at the UN as well as the International Development Research Centre on the Middle East Peace Process. He holds a PhD from the London School of Economics and an MA from the University of London King’s College in the Department of War Studies.
