ACS: American Foreign Policy in Middle East and Beyond

  • ACS Slider Image

Need something to do to unwind after a busy week? Wondering how you could meet new people from different walks of life on campus? Join us at Afternoon Conversation Series (ACS) for an interesting conversation!

ACS is a facilitated weekly experience put on by WUD Global Connections where you can engage in friendly conversations over different interactive themes presented each week.

This week our topic of discussion will be "Catalyzing Chaos?American Foreign Policy in Middle East and beyond" with Professor Samer Alatout. 

The US recently signed $38 billion in aid to Israel over next ten years proving that AIPAC continues to enjoy bipartisan support in the American congress. However, this doesn't seem to solve the conflict in Middle East. Israel-Palestine is a long-standing testimony of the turmoil. The Arab Spring proposed a radical shift in the middle eastern governments but now, with support or lack thereof from other countries, Syria to Egypt continue to face problems on a scale never seen before. There is also regional disagreement. The Saudi-Iranian conflict has been escalating with both countries standing firm on their ground. Have U.S. policies in Middle East worked in ways that we’ve wanted them to? Or have they backfired to become an even bigger issue for us? Is there time to change the American Foreign Policy in Middle East and beyond ?
