Webinar series bringing you live discussions from the Middle East, North Africa, Asia and beyond
Watch below the recorded live discussion on the current political and media landscapes of the Gulf 3 years after the Gulf crisis first began.

Our speakers explored questions such as: How have Saudi Arabia and the UAE’s calculations failed and how is Qatar faring today? Where do other key regional players such as US, Turkey and Iran stand in relation to the crisis? How has the emergence of new shared challenges this year (such as coronavirus) impacted the prospects for reconciliation? Who is winning the narrative war on the global stage?
