Will the cradle of civilization be a source of hope or doom? For nearly 20 years, the Chautauqua Institution has reviewed the political and cultural landscape of the Middle East. Featuring a diversity of analysts, the forum will investigate the continuing situation in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iran, Palestine and Israel. The week allows you to explore the long-term involvement of the international community and the United States.
I encourage you to join the discussion on the issues affecting this very vital economic and political region. Never before has the dialogue been as salient to the issues of security and politics. Chautauqua is a unique venue to hear from:
