Eight years after the dizzying hopes raised by the Arab Spring, the Middle East is consumed by a bewildering array of conflicts, from wars in Libya, Yemen, Syria and Iraq to new popular uprisings in Algeria and Sudan. What explains these interlocking conflicts—and where does the United States fit in? And how does it all relate to Iran's escalating conflict with America, Israel, and Saudi Arabia? Lynch will explain how the Arab Spring fundamentally upended regional order in the Middle East, and how difficult it will be to put any new stable order back into place.

Marc Lynch is Professor of Political Science at The George Washington University. He is the director of the Project on Middle East Political Science (POMEPS), Associate Editor of The Monkey Cage at the Washington Post, and a Non-Resident Senior Associate at the Carnegie Middle East Program. His most recent book was "The New Arab Wars."
