Dr Harry Hagopian - hands clasped

In February's 'Middle East Analysis' podcast, we're looking at the second phase of the Geneva II negotiations on the Syria crisis and the current state of play in Egypt.

We move on to US Secretary of State John Kerry's road-map for peace between Israel and Palestine, a scaling up of violence in Iraq before concluding with positive analyses of the situations in Tunisia and Yemen. 

Fortunately we have our regular studio guest Dr Harry Hagopian to help us navigate the region.

Dr Hagopian is the Bishops' Middle East North Africa (MENA) consultant.
