Fisk’s lecture will be entitled “‘Goodbye, Mr Sykes! Adieu, M. Picot!’ How the ISIS ‘caliphate’ frightens the Middle East – and us.” Join us, as Fisk talks about how the Syrian civil war – especially the rise of the so-called “Islamic State” – has destabilized the existing order in the Middle East.
