Update: Great Decisions 2016 – Middle East (PHOTOS)

The World Affairs Council of Harrisburg is hosting the 2016 Great Decisions discussions organized by the Foreign Policy Association.

The first topic will be on changing alliances in the Middle East:

From a proxy war in Yemen to an ongoing civil war in Syria, a number of conflicts have shaken the traditional alignments in the Middle East to their core. As alliances between state and non-state actors in the region are constantly shifting, the U.S. has found itself between a rock and a hard place. In a series of disputes that are far from being black-and-white, what can the U.S. do to secure its interests in the region without causing further damage and disruption?
