The Crisis in the Arab East and the Limits of U.S. Power
November 5, 2014 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Online registration for this event has closed.
The United States has been the dominant external power in the Mideast/North Africa region since the end of WWII. The recent turmoil in the region should be a cautionary and humbling example of the limits of U.S. power and influence amid the ethnic and religious strife of states with artificial borders and age-old animosities. Yet, the U.S. can’t afford to abandon certain regional responsibilities.What is the right balance of involvement for the U.S. after more than a decade of war and unintended consequences?
Ambassador Ted Kattouf is President and CEO of AMIDEAST, an American non-profit organization engaged in international education, training and development activities in the Middle East and North Africa, and former Ambassador to United Arab Emirates and Syria.
