Middle East Flashpoints: From Iran and Syria to ISIS and Saudi Arabia

Why is the Middle East seemingly impervious to change?

Political, economic, social, and religious crises abound, producing what journalist and author Robin Wright has termed “sacred rage.” Ms. Wright, a veteran New Yorker reporter and Distinguished Scholar at the Woodrow Wilson Center, who has covered almost all of the region’s myriad conflicts, will share insights on the multiple challenges facing the region.

Daniel Kurtzer, US ambassador (ret.) to both Israel and Egypt, will moderate the discussion.
