The New Middle East: the world after the Arab Spring

Download: Audio

Speaker(s): Paul Danahar
Chair: Dr Toby Dodge

Recorded on 16 October 2013 in Sheikh Zayed Theatre, New Academic Building.

Paul Danahar offers a fascinating and illuminating analysis of the new order in the Middle East following the Arab Spring, and explains what it will mean both for the region and the West in his new book, The New Middle East: the world after the Arab Spring.

Paul Danahar was the BBC’s Middle East bureau chief from 2010-2013 and responsible for the organisation’s news coverage of the Arab Spring.
