Security Assistance in the Middle East: A Conversation
Brought to you by
What do the United States and Europe have to show for the resources they have spent on security assistance in the Arab countries? Should they have been able to accomplish more? Two editors of a recent volume assess the costs and benefits to the main providers and recipients of security assistance in the MENA region and explore alternative strategies to improve outcomes for both.
Please join the CSIS Middle East Program for a conversation with Dr. Robert Springborg and Dr. Hicham Alaoui about their new book Security Assistance in the Middle East: Challenges … and the Need for Change. Dr. Lindsey Benstead and Alex Walsh will join to discuss their respective chapters, "Security Assistance and Public Support for Arab Militaries and EU" and "Member States’ Security Assistance: Complementary or Contradictory?"
This event was made possible through general support to CSIS.
