The Istituto Affari Internazionali (IAI) ​published in the last months a series of papers and held various events under the topic ​“Fostering a New Security Architecture in the Middle East​”​.

Details:

The Middle East has experienced growing tensions as a result of competing geopolitical agendas and reciprocal meddling in the internal affairs of states. These dynamics are being reinforced by international trends, creating a vicious cycle of accusatory rhetoric, threats and proxy violence that risk descending into a full-fledged military conflict, the implications of which would extend well beyond the Middle East itself and have dire international repercussions for Europe and the international system at large. The project aims to disentangle these geopolitical dynamics and tensions by researching the necessary steps to contribute to the establishment of a new security architecture in the Middle East on the basis of de-escalation, dialogue, confidence-building measures and cooperation. The project will map actors involved in the geopolitics of the region from the standpoint of key regional and extra-regional states, assessing their respective understandings of ‘security’ and ‘stability’ in the region and producing detailed research into the threat perceptions, priorities and interests of these respective actors. State actors addressed by the project include: United States, Russia, China, Turkey, Israel, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Iran and the European Union.

Launched in January 2020 and running through June 2020, the project is jointly implemented by IAI and the Foundation for European Progressive Studies (FEPS) in Brussels, with the support of the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation (MAECI) and the Compagnia di San Paolo of Turin. Outputs will include a 10-chapter edited volume, an online expert survey and a final dissemination conference tentatively scheduled for late June 2020 in Rome.

Report on “Infrastructures and Power in the Middle East and North Africa”​, published by the The Istituto Affari Internazionali (IAI)

Report on “Infrastructures and Power in the Middle East and North Africa”​, published by the The Istituto Affari Internazionali (IAI)

The Istituto Affari Internazionali (IAI) in cooperation with EuroMeSCo published a report on “Infrastructures and Power in the Middle East and North Africa”​, which can be accessed ​here​.

Report Description:

“Geopolitics is back. A more aggressive great power competition and the disruptive effects of new technologies have given new impetus to the analysis of the impact of geography on political decisions. Over the last decade, the Mediterranean and the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region have experienced profound and far-reaching social, political and economic transformations that have contributed to unprecedented levels of volatility and uncertainty. Some of these shifts have reshaped many of the traditional features of the geopolitical order in place in the region for decades, while others might have the potential to do so in the near future. Infrastructures is one of the areas where the effects of those global and regional dynamics are more visible and this is why a good grasp of the geopolitics of infrastructures can help us understand the broader geopolitical shifts in the Middle East and North Africa better. This is the main goal of this Joint Policy Study that ultimately aims to fill a gap in the scholarly work on the Mediterranean and the MENA region by delving into issues of geopolitical competition, conflict and cooperation from the point of view of the use of strategic infrastructures.” (Source IAI)
