About the Program

U.S. foreign policy and conflict resolution historically have been pillars of the Djerejian Center for the Middle East, drawing on the work of the Baker Institute’s founding director, Ambassador Edward P. Djerejian. The institute has played a leading role in promoting peace in the Middle East through unofficial Track II dialogues. The Conflict Resolution and U.S. Foreign Policy Program has conducted numerous workshops and conferences to lay the groundwork for a comprehensive Israeli-Palestinian peace agreement. The institute has published a number of reports and recommendations addressing negotiations, final status issues and the role of international actors in the peace process.

The program also aims to address U.S. foreign policy and strategic interests in the broader Middle East. Its experts produce timely and relevant recommendations for addressing short- and medium-term challenges, such as regional security and governance vacuums, and for addressing long-term U.S. strategy in a changing Middle East state system
