Generating a deeper understanding of the many uncertainties in the Middle East that have created a volatile security environment

This Program has been Archived and is no longer updated.

The Middle East program explores issues that affect regional security from the Mediterranean to the Gulf. The program’s two primary focuses include the strategic struggles between the Arab world and Iran, and sectarian identity in the region. The program is focused on the rising threat from sectarianism and its roots in radical Islamic ideology, looking at key countries and at regional consequences. Our Gulf security work analyzes both traditional and non-traditional security issues impacting the Gulf states and their neighbors.
