RUSI experts offered their assessments on the impact of Covid-19 in the Middle East.

While the pandemic has had the most devastating impact on Iran, coronavirus is affecting the rest of the Middle East as well.

At this online event RUSI experts will offer their analysis on how different countries are dealing with the crisis and how the global disease may change the course of security in the region.

The panel examined the impact of COVID-19 on the Middle East, including the Arab world, Iran and Turkey, in domestic terms. Our experts explored how the crisis affected these countries' calculations and influence when it comes to ongoing conflicts and neighbouring states.
