"After the Airlift: The Future of US Foreign Policy in the Middle East"

Attend this event via Zoom (advance registration required). This event will be recorded. 

From the Biden administration's approach of cooperative diplomacy—and broader disengagement—in the Middle East to the fallout of Trump's "America First" attitude, US foreign policy in the region continues on a complex path ahead. Several international journalists join Harvard scholars for an insightful discussion on American foreign policy in the Middle East.
