A Broken Middle East: a wasted decade of war on terror

Department of International Relations inaugural public lecture

Today’s Middle East is broken. The crisis of prolonged authoritarianism and failed economic policies have caused chronic poverty, pervasive corruption and the rise of extremism in Arab societies. A wasted decade of war on terror has reinforced widely held perceptions that the West is waging a crusade against Islam and Muslims.

Fawaz Gerges is a professor of Middle Eastern politics and international relations at LSE.
