Join us for a conversation with FPRI Senior Fellow Sean Yom, as he explores the geopolitics of authoritarianism and the implications for the Middle East in the 21st century. In his new book, From Resilience to Revolution: How Foreign Interventions Destabilize the Middle East, Yom builds on a comparative historical analysis of Iran, Jordan, and Kuwait, and analyzes the the role played by foreign powers in the construction and durability of autocratic states in the Middle East. Yom is assistant professor of political science at Temple University, where he focuses on the dynamics and effects of authoritarianism, democracy, and U.S. foreign policy.
