Japan-Lebanon Round Table for Middle Eastern Studies (No.1)

“The Middle East in the Midst of Political Cataclysm”

A century after the outbreak of World War I, we are observing the melt-down of borders established in the Sykes–Picot Agreement. Multiple players in the Syrian Civil War are compelling international powers to intervene at various levels, resulting in serious sectarian resonance in Iraq. Undoubtedly, in retrospect, the Iraq War of 2003 directly created this devastating result and the emergence of the “Islamic State” in the two countries, which had a global impact on many countries, from the US to Australia (and Japan). However, the glimpses of ancient social grievances in the two countries as well as in neighboring nations lead us to reconsider the current situation over longer timespans and wider ranges. The issues in and around the Middle East are all interwoven one another. The exchange of ideas among leading researchers from Japan and Lebanon will elucidate this issue from diverse viewpoints, which may help to gain a better perspective on the future of the Middle East.
