  • Régis LE SOMMIER, Deputy Editor-in-chief, Paris Match
  • Nadim SHEHADI, Associate Fellow, Middle East and North Africa Programme at Chatham House (By satellite from London)
  • Paul SALEM, Director of the Carnegie Middle East Center in Beirut (By satellite from Beirut, Lebanon)

Watch the 2nd part.
