Lawrence Rubin, an associate professor in the Sam Nunn School of International Affairs, was cited in The Foreign Policy Centre article "The Death of a General: What’s next for Iran, Iraq and the wider Middle East?"

Read an excerpt:

Dr. Lawrence Rubin (Associate Professor in the Sam Nunn School of International Affairs at the Georgia Institute of Technology) believes that ‘concerning implications for the region, it’s too early to say given the uncertainty in Iraqi politics and the most recent gaffe from US regarding troop withdrawal.  Naturally, the most important aspect will be how it plays out in Iraqi politics and second, how the US manages it. Sectarian politics have and will continue to play a role because of which Iraqi groups’ interests are more closely aligned with the US presence in the region.
