WIRA Conference: The Cold War of the Middle East — 10/5 & 6

The Second Annual Wesleyan International Relations Associations Conference:

“The Cold War of the Middle East: Saudi Arabia-Iran Relations”

Since tensions have been escalating recently between the two nations, with notable US involvement, this is particularly timely topic. From nuclear concerns to religious conflict, this topic features multiple facets that cannot be understood alone. Though the conflict is a complex one, we hope this day long conference will shed light onto the region’s politics and offer some insight into possibilities for conflict resolution or into the plausibility of military action.
