Challenges in the Middle East

On Thursday, April 20 the Council hosted former Middle East advisor to Vice President Joe Biden and current Senior Fellow at the American Center for Progress, Daniel Benaim, for an update on the state of the Middle East. The conversation was moderated by Nova Robinson, Professor of History and International Studies at Seattle University.

Topics that were addressed included an assessment of former President Obama’s policies in the Middle East, the region’s perception of the U.S., if there is a potential for the U.S.┬áto ‘rebrand’ this perception as well as further challenges the Middle East faces going forward.
