CMEC at Conservative Party Conference 2022

CMEC Fringe Event: Russia-Ukraine Crisis and UK-Middle East relationships

Russia's illegal invasion of Ukraine has had a devastating impact not only on Ukraine, but the world. What effect does Russia's illegal war have on The Middle East and North Africa, and the UK's relationships in the region?

To discuss this uncertain future, CMEC Director Charlotte Leslie chaired our Conservative Party Conference roundtable with special guests and Middle East experts: Lt. Gen. Sir Simon Mayall, former MOD Middle East Advisor, Baria Alamuddin, the celebrated author and columnist, and Dr Ziya Meral, Director for Research and Programmes and Head of Strategic Studies at the Centre for Historical Analysis and Conflict Research as well as Senior Associate Fellow of RUSI.
