SPL03313 – US Foreign Policy and the Changing Middle East
Instructor: Walid Phares, Ph.D.
The Middle East has changed, and these changes will affect world geopolitics on security, economic, diplomatic, and human rights grounds. How is U.S. foreign policy interacting with this sensitive region? Should Washington continue in the same direction, or should it develop new policies? This lecture by Dr. Walid Phares will examine and compare U.S. foreign policy and the Middle East under Obama v. U.S. foreign policy under Trump v. U.S. foreign policy under Biden. Following that overview, Phares will share his views on what bipartisan U.S. foreign policy toward the Middle East should be.
