The Arab Uprisings and the Rebirth of the Shi'a-Sunni Divide

  • Examines how religion is instrumentalized for political purposes, and how it is perceived and practiced by Muslims in its own right
  • Argues that sectarianism poses a threat to regional states and stakeholders in the wider world, including the United States and its allies
