Middle East Analysis

In this Middle East Analysis podcast, Dr Harry Hagopian discusses the anti-government uprisings in Libya, Yemen and Bahrain.

With the eyes of the world focused firmly on Libya, Dr Hagopian, an international lawyer and consultant to both the Bishops' Conference of England and Wales and the Middle East Council of Churches, takes a closer look at the rapidly developing situation in the North Africa Middle East region.

"We should realise that for stability to be real in that part of the world, the people have to speak, the people have to be empowered, the people have to have a sense of dignity and respect. The people have to have representation and a voice...”
Dr Harry Hagopian
