Israel Unwrapped Conference Call

The Trump Administration’s Vision for the Middle East
Featuring Jason Isaacson, AJC Director of Government and International Affairs
Project Interchange Alumni Learning Session via Conference Call
April 3, 12:30 PM ET

For call-in information and registration, email Lili Kalish Gersch.

It’s been over six years since the beginning of the Arab Uprising. In that time, we have seen the Middle East transformed by the removal of long-standing rulers, civil wars in Syria and Libya, the rise of ISIS, the Iran nuclear agreement, and the reshuffling of longstanding regional and international alliances.

As the Trump administration inherits the challenges and complexities of the Middle East, how will they begin to formulate their policies? Should the region expect a radical departure from Obama-era policy?
We hope that you will be able to join us on Monday, April 3 at 12:30 PM, as Jason Isaacson, AJC’s Associate Executive Director for Policy, outlines the key features of the Trump Administration’s approach to the Middle East.
