Michele Flournoy - Three Time Winner of the D.O.D. Medal for Distinguished Service

Former U.S. Under Secretary of Defense for Policy, Michele Flournoy, with uniquely impressive knowledge of the subject, provides an overview of nuclear proliferation in the Middle East and the drivers behind it. She will also frame the strategic consequences of further proliferation should Iran acquire the bomb and others follow suit, and the options available to the United States and the international community.

Ronald Kiener - Trinity Professor, Visiting Lecturer at Universities in Jerusalem and Tel Aviv

What are the main themes of the United States’ century-long involvement in Middle Eastern affairs? Professor Ronald Kiener suggests some discernible patterns. His presentation explores key developments, which changed the way the United States relates to the region, and how the region relates to the United States, with special emphasis on the radically new military and diplomatic engagement of the last two decades.
