Professor Eytan Gilboa, a Middle East scholar and commentator will speak on “Geo-political Transformations in the Middle East: Causes, Development and Consequences.” Dr. Gilboa will explain how Middle Eastern borders were drawn after the First World War, how those borders were preserved for almost a century, why now these once-solid geopolitical lines have become blurred, and what are the effects of these transformations on the region and the West.

He is a Senior Research Associate at the BESA Center for Strategic Studies and Visiting Professor of Public Diplomacy at USC. He received his MA and PhD degrees from Harvard University.
