Beyond Terror and Martyrdom: the future of the Middle East

LSE IDEAS Philippe Romas Chair Inaugural lecture


9/11 set off a major conflict between the United States and Al Qaeda. How and why did the Bush administration define the issue of terrorism in terms of a 'war on terror' and with what consequences for the stability of a region containing 60% of the world's oil reserves and several of America's more important global allies?

Gilles Kepel is Philippe Roman Chair in History and International Affairs for 2009-10. Professor Kepel is best known for his books on the Middle East and North Africa, and for his work on Islamism, including Islamism in Europe.
