Great Decisions: Middle East Alignment (Part Two) with Beth Dougherty, PhD

February 19 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Manitowoc Public Library

Balkansky Community Room ABC

Monday, February 19, 2024, 6:00pm – 8:00pm

Great Decisions, a project of the Foreign Policy Association, is a grassroots world affairs education program which brings together Americans from across the nation to discover and discuss foreign policy issues. Over the course of eight weeks, scholars will introduce each issue, and participants may explore their own views and those of the group.

Middle East Alignment (Part Two): The United States and Middle East are at a crossroads. In spite of a reduced presence in the Middle East, the  U.S. still has significant national interests there and the area is a key arena for global power politics. Can the U.S. continue to defend its interests in the Middle East and globally with a lower level of military and political involvement, or should it recommit to a leading role in the region?
