Syria-Iraq Relations: From State Formation to the Arab Uprising

Professor Raymond Hinnebusch will examine the relationship between Iraq and Syria, with the aim of using their changing relations as indicators of changes in the surrounding states and MENA regional states system. He will therefore discuss the current relationship as emblematic of the current status quo of the states system in the Middle East and North Africa.
