ISIS has been defeated militarily, but the fight for the Middle East is just beginning.

At this event Gilles Kepel, author of The Rise of Jihad in the West, discusses the future of the region and how it will shape global politics in the decades ahead.

Hear more about how sectarian conflict, bold new leaders, economic changes, and shifting geopolitics will be at the centre of the struggle for power and influence in the Middle East.

Gilles Kepel is Chair of Middle East and Mediterranean Studies at École Normale Supérieure.

Minouche Shafik is Director of LSE. Prior to this she was Deputy Governor of the Bank of England.
