A Changing Security Landscape for the Middle East


Bilal Saab
Resident Senior Fellow,
Brent Scowcroft Center on International Security

With no end in sight for the civil war in Syria, it continues to escalate and bring in more actors, with Russia being the latest addition to this deadly conflict. The continuing rise of radicalization and sectarianism throughout the region, the Syrian war is one of many challenges driving the departure of millions of Middle Eastern civilians into Europe. The security landscape in the Middle East continue to be front and center for many in the policy circle in the United States and around the globe.

Please join us on Wednesday, November 18 for an exclusive members’ briefing and post-briefing reception with Bilal Saab, Resident Senior Fellow for Middle East Security at the Atlantic Council’s Brent Scowcroft Center on International Security. Bilal recently published a new monograph entitled, The New Containment: Changing America’s Approach to Middle East Security, which makes the case for a more creative and cost-effective US containment approach to regional security.
