Wolfgang Danspeckgruber, Founding Director of LISD, is pleased to invite you to the second of two virtual lectures by Amb. Dr. Hans-Ulrich Seidt. Both lectures are part of the PORDIR and GDSC Seminar Series.
The seminar will focus on the four regional powers of the Near and Middle East: Israel, Iran, Turkey and Saudi-Arabia. We will analyze the importance of religion for their foreign policy, their diplomacy and their alliance systems.
