Report: The Middle East: Darkness Before the New Dawn? Regional Conflicts and the Future of the Global Community


Military conflicts, terrorism, lack of natural resources, unemployment, disparity – all these are but a fraction of problems, which persist in the Middle East. Political rivalry at regional level as well as global actors’ interference lead to increasing tensions. Why does the region turn out to be so vulnerable to the conflict?

The state of affairs in Syria, Iraq and other hotbeds look like an intersection point between incompatible interests both of state and non-state actors. Such conflicts defies traditional explanations, becoming hybrid and asymmetric ones.

Revolutions and wars bring about profound changes while the need for socio-economic reforms poses another one threat to the Middle East countries.

In this darkness, the new dawn is shimmering. How will it look like? Will it happen?
