Middle East Program

The Middle East program provides cutting-edge analysis of the emerging political, economic, and social trends in the world's most volatile region, offering insights and recommendations about the Middle East, its history, the sources of its current instability, and where it might be headed. Washington, DC, continues to import oil from the Persian Gulf, guarantee 以色列's security, 和 preserve regional stability, even as regional leaders question its political will to remain a power in the region.
