Joel Migdal Book Talk, Shifting Sands

02 Feb 2018


Please join us for a talk with prominent scholar Joel Migdal. In his recent book, Shifting Sands, Dr. Migdal discusses how key transformations led to a series of missteps and misconceptions in the 20th century US policy towards the Middle East. He sees an opportunity for the US to deploy a new, more workable strategy. When he joins us, he will highlight key themes in his recent work and extend its analysis to present day challenges in the region.

This event is part of the Graduate School of Public and International Affairs’ Middle East Politics and Development Lecture Series.
