“Useful or Useless?: The EU Role in the Arab Revolts”

Thanks to all of you who attended the first of this year’s Security and International Relations Programme Seminars last Thursday (4th October).
Professor Rosemary Hollis gave a seminar titled, “Useful or Useless?: The EU Role in the Arab Revolts”.
This was a fascinating, and very timely analysis, of the impact of the EU’s policies towards the Middle East and North Africa prior to the eruption of the “Arab Spring”. Professor Hollis advanced a very critical assessment – particularly of the UK’s role – and argued that the EU exacerbated the tensions and frustration amongst the general public which exploded in late 2010.
A video of her talk is available here….
All the best,
