The Geopolitic of the Middle East

| Middle East Program

About the Event

Adam GarfinkleTo understand the Middle East, a region riven by conflict, you need an expert “geopolitician” to explain the chessboard. Few analysts are able to explain each conflict in the larger historical, cultural and geopolitical context; Adam Garfinkle is one of the few. He is the founding editor of The American Interest. He served in 2003-05 as principal speechwriter to the Secretary of State and received his Ph.D. in international relations from the University of Pennsylvania. An FPRI alum, he currently serves on FPRI’s Board of Advisors.
