National Security, the Middle East, and the New Administration
November 15, 2016 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
As the American election season winds down, conflicts in the Middle East continue to provoke policy debates and will require immediate attention from the new Presidential administration. This panel will consider threats to the region and national security in two dimensions–first, discussing the potential national security and counterterrorism strategies for the next administration and how the Middle East’s challenges should be considered in relation to other strategic priorities, including Asia, and second, addressing current developments in the area, including the future of ISIS’s strategic priorities and external operations as it faces setbacks in Syria and Iraq.
Speakers will include:
- Cole Bunzel, Princeton University
- Zachary K. Goldman, Executive Director, Center on Law and Security, and Adjunct Professor, NYU School of Law; Co-Founder, NYU Center for Cybersecurity
- Michael Wahid Hanna, Adjunct Senior Fellow, Center on Law and Security; Senior Fellow, The Century Foundation
- Kori Schake, Research Fellow, Hoover Institution
