International Relations
(Bachelor’s programme)
2017
The modern Middle East seems to be one of the most militarized regions in the world. Confrontation between main regional powers such as Saudi Arabia and Iran creates more regional tensions. This conflict is deeply rooted in the history and linked with the race for the regional dominance and leading role in the Muslim community. There three main directions of the confrontation, which are geopolitical, ideological and religious. Shaping of coalitions around those centers of power leads to the split of the Middle East into two combating sides.

This study focuses on the research of the main problems between Iran and Saudi Arabia, and on the role of the Saudi-Iranian confrontation in the region through the conflict in Syria.
