10 February 2016: Middle East and Emerging Islamism

Islamism has emerged as a powerful force in the politics and security paradigm of the world. The rise of the Islamic State in the Middle East may have come as a surprise to some, but was the culmination of a process that had been around through most of the 20th century. New tensions, exacerbated by the Shia-Sunni divide have now formed another layer of complexity to the issue, which could well take unexpected directions in the future and have implications not just for the Middle-East but the world. The panel discussion is an effort to understand some of these issues and their implications.
