Global Axess 2019: Past and Present
Emma Sky on The age of monsters
15 years later, the Middle East is plagued by sectarianism and civil war, the balance of power has shifted to Iran’s advantage and Russia has strengthened its influence at the expense of the United States. How did this happen and what does the future look like for the region? Niklas Ekdahl talks with Emma Sky, chair of the Yale University World Fellows program and Senior Fellow at the Jackson Institute of International Affairs. Sky worked on the reconstruction of Iraq in 2003-2004 and was political adviser to US General Ray Odierno from 2007-2010.
