MENA Salon: “After” ISIS

3 - 4 p.m.
Stephens Hall 340

Center for Middle Eastern Studies

The multiplying defeats and subsequent retreats of ISIS, culminating in the loss of its de-facto capital, Raqqa, in mid-October, evoke the inevitable question: is ISIS nearing the end? In this week's MENA Salon, while considering this question, we will raise other longer-term issues: Can ISIS survive in some other form? Is the organization already relocating and transforming back to its origins? What does a post-ISIS scenario imply for the geopolitics of the Middle East and North Africa? Recommended readings on the CMES website.
