The Creation of the Modern Middle
East: A British Boarding School Mindset 8.00pm
Tuesday 9 June
people tend to forget that the Middle East wasn't always the way you see
it on the map nowadays. In fact, it never looked like that throughout
history. Going back to the roots of WWI will enable us to better
understand who was fighting over future control of the disintegrating
Ottoman Empire, which approach they tried to apply, and how it ended up
with the creation of an extremely artificial political map which still
exists and affects everyone today, causing our region to be very
volatile. There is no way to understand what is going on in the Middle
East without understanding this first.
Our speaker Gil Regev is a popular lecturer
at the Av Shalom Institute. After graduating from Law School with an
LL.B and LL.M, Gil changed professional direction and become a guide to
diplomats, journalists, businessman and prominent tourists, offering
tours and lectures that combine legal and geo-political issues.
