Title: The Greater Middle East & Central Asia And Its Implications for American Foreign Policy
Date: Mon. Mar 17, 2014
Time: 9:00 AM - 4:30 PM

Much of the scholarly research about the Middle East and Central Asia either revolves around past histories of these two regions or their current situations. Scant attention is paid to the future and sustainable trends in these two geo-strategically important regions.

The purpose of this one and a half day conference is to fill this vacuum by identifying and discussing the future trends in the Greater Middle East and Central Asia and their implications for American national interests. The conference will look at: democracy, Islamism/Islamic Movement, proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, terrorism, and American foreign policy.

Our distinguished guests have been asked to be provocative and think “out-of-the-box” in their analysis.  Clearly focusing on the future trends and possibilities is highly speculative, and that is exactly what we have encouraged our guests to do. The audience is encouraged to ask probing questions and challenge our guests. Join us for an intellectual adventure.

This is a two day conference on March 17-18, 2014.
