Member Exclusive: The Middle East Cauldron and U.S. Foreign Policy

Since President Donald Trump has assumed office, crises in the Middle East have continued to be among the most critical challenges facing policymakers and the international community. Revolutions, civil wars, terrorism, refugee migration, the unresolved Israeli-Palestinian conflict and geopolitical rivalries characterize the region.

The Middle East remains central to U.S. interests, and responding to these challenges requires coherent and effective policies and an overarching strategy. The Trump administration’s Middle East policy decisions will have important implications nationally, regionally and globally.

At this event, Baker Institute director Ambassador Edward P. Djerejian addressed the region’s complex geopolitical landscape and U.S. policy options. 

This event was co-sponsored by the Baker Institute Center for the Middle East and the American Jewish Committee Houston Region. Follow @BakerInstitute on Twitter and join the conversation online with #BakerMiddleEast.




This event was open only to members of the Baker Institute Roundtable and members of the American Jewish Committee. For more information about joining the Roundtable, please contact assistant director of development Starr Dickerson (713.348.8087 or starrd@rice.edu).
