President Donald Trump will confront an array of difficult choices as he and his administration consider how to address the conflicts in the Middle East that continue to threaten global stability. Please join us for an interactive online video discussion with Hariri Center experts Mohamed Eljarh, Faysal Itani, and Tarek Radwan to examine what overall strategy the new Administration should pursue in the Middle East, what policy changes the new Administration should make, and other questions. Joyce Karam of Al Hayat will moderate the discussion.

This event is part of the Atlantic Council’s Middle East Strategy Task Force initiative, co-chaired by former US Secretary of State Madeleine K. Albright and former US National Security Advisor Stephen J. Hadley. In November 2016, the co-chairs published their Task Force report that proposes a pragmatic and actionable Middle East roadmap that emphasizes the efforts of the people of the Middle East themselves supported by the long-term engagement of the international community, with an eye toward harnessing the region’s enormous human potential. The Task Force brought together a broad array of regional stakeholders and international experts to collaborate in identifying ways in which people in the Middle East can build and support governing institutions that offer legitimacy, opportunity, and an alternative to violence.
