Shifting Sands In Middle East Geopolitics?

This year witnessed several changes in Middle Eastern political dynamics. As countries focus on economic recovery in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic, there has been a clear shift towards de-escalating tensions within Gulf countries. This has been taking place amidst a perceived withdrawal of US influence in the region under the Biden administration. We discuss key developments and issues to watch in the coming year with Middle East expert Dr. James Dorsey. Image credit: Shutterstock.com
