Middle East Analysis

Syria ceasefire, Migrant crisis and Israel/Palestine

19/09/2016 6:31 pm

This Middle East Analysis podcast sees a welcome return to studio duties for Dr Harry Hagopian - the Bishops' consultant on matters relating to the Middle East North North Africa (MENA) region.

After a two-month Summer hiatus, there was much to talk about. Rather than pursuing the futile task of trying to catch up with eight weeks' worth of events in a region racked by explosions of violence, tension and uncertainty, we focused on three things:

  • The US-Russian brokered ceasefire in Syria
  • The UN Summit for Refugees and Migrants held in New York on Monday 19 September 2016
  • World Week for Peace in Palestine Israel #DismantlingBarriers
