Event Description:

Waleed Hazbun, Richard L. Chambers Professor of Middle Eastern Studies in the Department of Political Science at the University of Alabama, will give a lecture entitled "In America’s Wake: Turbulence and Insecurity in the Middle East.” The lecture will take place on Monday, September 16 at 5:30 p.m. in Kimpel (KIMP) 102 on the University of Arkansas Fayetteville campus.

Since the Arab Uprisings, the regional politics of the Middle East has transformed from a system organized around and against a security architecture managed by the United States, into a multipolar system lacking norms, institutions, or balancing mechanisms to constrain conflict and the use of force. Hazbun argues that this shift is not a result of the retreat of the U.S. or a consequence of a so-called “power vacuum,” but a product of past U.S. efforts to impose order on the region through coercive force.

Post 9/11 interventions by the U.S. failed to establish a stable regional security architecture, but instead generated intense insecurity for both rival and allied states as well as societies, while witnessing the proliferation of armed non-state actors and the erosion of state capacity. As the regional system has become more complex and multipolar, a condition Hazbun refers to as turbulence, continued reliance by the U.S. and its allies on coercion rather than accommodation has only intensified the dynamics of regional instability.

This lecture is presented by the King Fahd Center for Middle East Studies, the Department of Political Science, and the International and Global Studies Program at the University of Arkansas.
