The United States has experienced ongoing challenges in the Middle East over the past 50 years. Autocracies and the rise of religious extremism have contributed to the problems in foreign policy.
In his presentation, Crain will draw on his experience and interest in conflict studies, particularly the Arab-Israeli conflict. He will examine the past, present and future of U.S foreign policy in the volatile region.
