The Crisis in Gaza and the Challenge of Regional Order in the Middle East

/

The Gulf Research Center (GRC) is organizing a webinar on “The Crisis in Gaza and the Challenge of Regional Order in the Middle East” on March 13, 2024, 1:00-3:00 PM (Saudi Arabia time).

Israel’s devastating response to the attacks of October 7 continues unabated, with nearly 30,000 Palestinians having been killed.

While international calls for an immediate comprehensive cease-fire are increasing, there is still no wide international consensus on the way forward.

The longer the crisis continues, the greater the threat of regional escalation and increased extremism.

The Gulf Research Center (GRC) feels it is essential to delve into the complex dynamics surrounding the crisis in Gaza, examining its implications on regional stability and the broader challenges to establishing sustainable peace in the Middle East.

The webinar aims to explore and examine what steps Europe and the GCC states can take to de-escalate the crisis and pave the way for a medium- to long-term political solution. Key aspects to be considered include:

- The parameters for bringing about an immediate ceasefire and alleviating the humanitarian situation in Gaza.

- Steps needed to ensure compliance with international law and international humanitarian standards.

- Examining strategies whereby the United States and Israel can be brought to a broader consensus about the need to stop the violence and engage in a more comprehensive political process.

- Exploring strategies for international diplomacy and conflict resolution both in the crisis and in the context of preventing wider regional escalation.
