Holy Lands: Sectarianism in the Middle East – In Pictures

May 23, 2016

On Thursday 19 May, we were joined by a panel of experts to discuss the roots of today’s sectarian tensions in the Middle East and how they have come to characterise the region as a whole. The event was chaired by (R-L) Iraqi-British journalist and political analyst Mina Al-Oraibi and speakers included The Economist’s Middle East correspondent Nicolas Pelham, Patrick Cockburn Middle East correspondent for The Independent, Safa Al Ahmad, a Saudi Arabian journalist and filmmaker, and Firas Abi Ali, a Senior Principal Analyst for IHS Country Risk.
