About the Event:

Join Ambassador Dennis Ross as he sketches the contours of the Middle East the Biden administration has inherited. Ambassador Ross will discuss the wars in Syria, Libya, and Yemen, highlight the three groupings vying for influence throughout the region, underline what the Abraham Accords says about the region’s evolution, and outline the challenge posed by Iran.

About the Speaker: 

Ambassador Dennis Ross is counselor and William Davidson Distinguished Fellow at The Washington Institute for Near East Policy. He is also Distinguished Professor of the Practice of Diplomacy at Georgetown University. For more than twelve years, Ambassador Ross played a leading role in shaping U.S. involvement in the Middle East peace process, dealing directly with the parties as the U.S. point man on the peace process in both the George H. W. Bush and Bill Clinton administrations. He served two years as special assistant to President Obama and National Security Council senior director for the Central Region, and a year as special advisor to Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton.

Ambassador Ross’s book, Be Strong and of Good Courage: How Israel’s Most Important Leaders Shaped Its Destiny (PublicAffairs, 2019), was co-written with his colleague David Makovsky and published in September 2019. The work profiles four Israeli prime ministers who made historic choices and explores their decisions to see if they can provide a guide to dealing with the fateful choice that Israel’s leaders must soon confront or by default become a binational state.

***For all other accommodation requests, please email cjcinfo@georgetown.edu by March 4. A good-faith effort will be made to fulfill all requests.
