Roundtable Exclusive: Policy Challenges in the Middle East for the New Administration

The next U.S. president will inherit a daunting foreign policy agenda, including pressing Middle East issues near the top of the list. While the region is central to U.S. geopolitical interests, effective policies remain elusive. The steps the next administration takes will have an impact for decades to come.

Ambassador Edward P. Djerejian engaged in a discussion with the audience on the current situation in the Middle East, and some policy options the new administration might consider to navigate the region’s complex political landscape.

Join the conversation online with #BakerMiddleEast.
