Middle East Security

Within Middle East Security

The CNAS Middle East Security program will explore and recommend policy choices to advance U.S. national security objectives in the Middle East in the coming period in which the preponderance of U.S. military resources and attention will shift to other regions. The program will identify strategies and tools available to continue to promote regional stability and security, advance partnerships and alliances, and anticipate emerging challenges. Additionally, the program will examine the strategic choices facing U.S. partners and adversaries in the Middle East region to better understand and predict their decision-making in the context of a fast-evolving strategic landscape.
