For those who don't want to watch the videos of these panels, the podcast is a great alternative. Middle East Institute panels cover a range of topics that you can choose from, providing nuance, and in-depth conversation on important issues facing the MENA region. Highly recommended for those working in or on MENA.
Needs to fix its dates
All episodes are released with the year "0017," which keep crashing my app. Please fix it. Otherwise great podcast.
