RSIS Seminar by Dr Adam Garfinkle and Associate Professor Ahmed Hashim
14 January 2020
The US targeted killing of Qassem Soleimani on a visit to Iraq is the biggest game-changing event in the Middle East in many years. Motives, implications and long-range consequences for multiple actors in and beyond the region are now matters of intense scrutiny amid much uncertainty. Dr Adam Garfinkle, a former member of the US State Department’s Policy Planning staff, Middle East policy specialist and Distinguished Visiting Fellow at RSIS, and Associate Professor Ahmed Hashim, Head of Horizon Threats and Strategies in RSIS’ Institute of Defence and Strategic Studies, will sketch the issues at play.
