GCTC Yuva Manthan: “Prospect for Stability in West Asia’’ || 14 April 2020

Trapped in a political tsunami, the West Asian region has been weathering waves of volatility and instability for the last few years. The political storm that slammed into Tunis in late 2010 gradually engulfed the entire region under the umbrella of ‘Arab Spring’, a journey that has been nothing short of turbulent. Several countries witnessed a street show of public dissatisfaction against existing despotic regimes, paving the way for change. Against this backdrop GCTC organised a webinar on 14th April to stimulate discussion and debate on the theme of contemporary socio-economic and political developments in the region.
Speakers who graced this event were: Bradley Bowman (Senior Director of the Centre on Military and Political Power) – Prof. Aswini K. Mohapatra (Dean, School of International Studies, JNU) – Meena Singh Roy (Research Fellow at the West Asia Centre, IDSA). Lt. Gen. Ata Hasnain (retired General of the Indian Army), Prof. Madhav Das Nalapat (Editorial Director of Itv network, India), Varsha Koduvayun (research analyst, Foundation for Défense of Democracies).
The conference focused on in-depth assessment of socio-political and strategic trends unfolding in West Asia. The diverse and rich exchange of information on the subject helped to envision a holistic landscape of the region, with well-defined focus on regional and international repercussions of recent developments.
