Challenges for the Next President: Is the Middle East Still Important?
A public lecture by Dr. Shibley Telhami
The talk will focus on the high regional expectations for a new American role in Iraq, the Arab-Israeli conflict, and relations with Iran, and on the shifting economic and global priorities that are likely to alter the next President’s agenda. Dr. Telhami is the Anwar Sadat Professor for Peace and Development at the University of Maryland, College Park, and non-resident senior fellow at the Saban Center at the Brookings Institution.
