What has been going on in the Middle East in the last few months? Will things change with the new U.S. administration? What are the chances for a renewal of the Iran nuclear deal? Will Syria's President Bashar al-Assad survive? Will Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman continue the war in Yemen? Can Egypt's President Sisi crush the coronavirus? Can the Palestinian Authority get serious peace talks back on track? A panel with experts on the Middle East based in Northwest Arkansas discuss these and other issues in this lively presentation.


Hosted by the King Fahd Center for Middle East Studies, an academic and research unit in the Fulbright College of Arts and Sciences at the University of Arkansas, dedicated to the study of the modern Middle East and the geo-cultural area in which Islamic civilization prospered and continues to shape world history.
