From Iran to Syria, from Israel to Bahrain, a dizzying array of urgent Middle East issues are competing for the attention of U.S. policymakers, journalists, and the general public. To deepen Washington's understanding of the often complex dynamics that drive crises in the region, Washington Institute scholars have been fanning out across the Middle East to meet local leaders and gain firsthand impressions of the critical challenges facing U.S. policy.
On March 27, 2012, Robert Satloff, Simon Henderson, and Andrew J. Tabler reported on their recent trips to the region at a Washington Institute Policy Forum.
Robert Satloff, the Institute's executive director and Howard P. Berkowitz chair in U.S. Middle East policy, will have just returned from Israel and Jordan.
Simon Henderson, the Baker fellow and director of the Gulf and Energy Policy Program at the Institute, will have just returned from Bahrain.
Andrew J. Tabler, the Institute's Next Generation fellow, recently traveled to Lebanon and Turkey. He will participate in the forum via Skype from Geneva.
