VIDEO: Frederic Wehrey on "Sectarian Politics in the Gulf"

In the following video, Frederic Wehrey discusses his new book Sectarian Politics in the Gulf: From the Iraq War to the Arab Uprisings.

Wehrey argues that sectarianism in the region has largely been the product of the institutional weaknesses of Gulf states, leading to excessive alarm by entrenched Sunni elites and calculated attempts by regimes to discredit Shiʿa political actors.
