This webinar aims to discuss the complex border issue in the Middle East. Such an issue is the legacy of the treaties which followed the First World War, but also of the unresolved conflicts which have permanently shaken the region since the beginning of the Cold War. Today, the Middle East therefore is a very interesting area for border studies, which notably challenges the sovereignty of States and the traditional concepts. More especially, during this webinar, Lebanese borders, the southern Arab borders of Turkey and the border between Turkey and Iran will be addressed by the panelists.
