WASHINGTON, DC

Thursday, Jan. 27 // 10–11:30 a.m. (ET)

In 2022, the Biden administration faces several critical challenges in the Middle East. Among the flashpoints: The United States and the world’s five other major powers are currently engaged in last-gasp diplomacy to contain Iran’s steadily advancing nuclear program. Iraq faces political uncertainty as it struggles to form a new government after the October election. Lebanon’s economy and government have virtually imploded. Libya is stuck in a decade-long civil war, with elections delayed. Meanwhile, the civil wars in Syria and Yemen have produced epic destruction and displacement. Each presents obstacles to the U.S. goal of fostering stability in the world’s most volatile region and shifting its long-term focus to Asia.

To assess these challenges, the Middle East Program convenes a panel of Wilson Center and regional experts to discuss what is on the horizon on the geopolitical map of the MENA region and how the administration can productively address conflicts and strengthen regional security.
