40 Years after the Outbreak of the Iran-Iraq war

An Online Symposium of Panels Marking:

Forty Years after the Outbreak of the Iran-Iraq War








Creators and moderators of the series: Dr. Liora Hendelman-Baavur and Dr. Ronen Zeidel

The eight-year war between Iraq and Iran was the longest war between two countries in the 20th century. This war used chemical weapons, long-range airstrikes as well as long-range missiles and claimed the lives of hundreds of thousands of casualties. The war ended in 1988 under the auspices of UN Security Council Resolution 598, but its implications are evident to this day in relations between the two countries as well as in their internal and external conduct in the Gulf and Middle East region.
 To mark four decades since the outbreak of the Iran-Iraq War, the ACIS hosts a series of zoom/webinar meetings that will take place during September-December 2020. The meetings will take the form of a 60-minute panel discussion, each hosting two-three guest-speakers that will shed light on different angles and views about this war and its ramifications to the region.
