The Battle for Hegemony in the Middle East

Addressing vulnerability and promoting security
Posted Jun 13, 2017 | Australian Strategic Policy Institute, Einat Wilf

If a common Sunni Arab polity were to emerge under the banner of the more extreme interpretations of Islam, Einat Wilf of the Australian Strategic Policy Institute argues, it could constitute an existential threat to the non-Sunni, non-Arab and non-Muslim minorities of the Middle East. This report focuses on: the potential leaders of the Sunni world and their adversaries; the theatres in which the struggles for hegemony might take place; the ‘tools of power’ the competing players will have available; and key demographic, economic and environmental factors that could influence events.
