While prominent voices in Washington have argued that U.S. interests in the Middle East are dwindling and will require the United States to “do less” there, Jake Sullivan argued in a recent Foreign Affairs article that the United States should be more ambitious using U.S. leverage and diplomacy to promote regional stability. 

Sullivan will join us for a discussion of the future of U.S. grand strategy in the Middle East. Throughout the event, participants are encouraged to submit questions to the guest, Jake Sullivan, and host, Jon B. Alterman, via Zoom. Questions can be submitted in advance via the link above. 

This event is made possible through general support to CSIS.
