On Thursday 23 May, Professor Gilles Kepel will deliver the final lecture in the series entitled Beyond chaos. Geopolitical and cultural configurations of the Middle East Mediterranean.

He will propose some concluding reflections on the global challenges and the international consequences of the conflicts of the Levant. The political solution to the persistent warfare situation ravaging Syria will be the keystone for a virtuous rehabilitation of the entire Middle East and its reintegration into the world order, which would also enhance its security. The talk, in French, will be held in room A11, red building, Lugano Campus, at 6.30pm.

The conference is part of “Beyond chaos. Geopolitical and cultural configurations of the Middle East Mediterranean”, the series organised by the MEM Freethinking Platform, the USI initiative led by Professor Gilles Kepel with the aim of encouraging analysis and debate on the region. The title is inspired by Prof. Kepel latest book and evokes the chaotic and changing situation of the region, while suggesting new narratives and potential ways to face current challenges. The series has featured public lectures from Prof. Kepel and presentations by other experts in the region.
