Working Paper: ‘The struggle between Turkey & Saudi Arabia for the leadership of Sunni Islam’

venetisIn Working Paper 34/2014 Research Fellow of ELIAMEP Dr Evangelos Venetis focuses on the struggle between Turkey and Saudi Arabia for the leadership of Sunni Islam. The geopolitical antagonism in the Middle East is currently revolving around three powers: Shiite Iran, Sunni radical Saudi Arabia and Sunni moderate Turkey. Turkish-Saudi Arabian rivalry for the leadership of the Sunni Islamic world is ongoing and is expected to escalate further in close connection with the Sunni-Shiite conflict in the region. The two conflicts overlap with Turkey being more flexible between the arch-foes Iran and Saudi Arabia.
