What President Clinton (or Trump) will mean for the Middle East


Is there anything the US can do in Syria? Will the diplomatic success of the Iran deal be built upon? Will stability be prioritised over democracy (if that ever actually works)? And will the US still be engaged in the Middle East at a time when many Americans would rather they weren’t involved at all? Monocle’s Steve Bloomfield is joined by Sir William Patey – former UK ambassador to Iraq, Afghanistan and Saudi Arabia – alongside Chatham House’s Lina Khatib and analyst Bill Law.
