Dr Harry Hagopian, the Bishops' Consultant on the Middle East

As we enter the season of Advent, the ever-evolving political, social and economic realities of the MENA region once again come into sharp focus for today's Middle East Analysis.

In a two-part podcast, Dr Harry Hagopian, the Bishops' Consultant on the Middle East, offers his unique, thought-provoking insight into the current regional power struggles and political maneuvering with Syria and Egypt taking centre stage.

We look at...

  • The Arab League's sanctions against Syria in light of the continued bloodletting in the country
  • The UN report citing Syrian security forces for crimes against humanity
  • Elections in Egypt, what this means to the country's people - particularly Coptic Christians
  • A regional round-up looking at Yemen, Israel and Palestine

Durations

Part One: 16m 4s
Part Two: 16m 38s
