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.

Dr Daniela Huber (IAI) participated as a speaker to the Virtual Debate “The Biden Administration and the Middle East: Back to the Future or a Managed Retreat?”

Dr Daniela Huber, Head of the Mediterranean and Middle East Programme at the Istituto Affari Internazionali (IAI), participated as a speaker to the Virtual Debate @Academy event on “The Biden Administration and the Middle East: Back to the Future or a Managed Retreat?”, February 3, 2021.

About the event:

“The Middle East is busy adjusting for the Biden presidency. While some capitals are anxious and fearful, others are hopeful. During the Trump administration’s tenure, U.S. policy aggravated regional crises and undermined the U.S. standing in the region. The de-institutionalization and personalization of U.S. relations reduced the American footprint and its credibility. This period also witnessed regional and international powers’ scramble to fill the void left by the U.S. But will the Biden administration reverse Donald Trump’s course or manage a retreat?”
