Location: Thompson Reuters Conference Room, 1333 H Street, Washington DC
Time: Wednesday 27 May, 6.30pm
For almost a year, the United States and its allies have been battling the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria. But where does that war stand now? Has the group passed its peak? How does the battle fit in to the multiple other conflicts and confrontations within the region, not least that between the Sunni Gulf States and Shiite Iran? What does the situation on the ground really look like? And what, if anything, should Washington and the West be doing differently?
PS21 brings together a uniquely qualified and experienced panel to discuss a conflict that could yet define the Middle East for decades to come.
