About this capture
September 7, 2015
NABIL FAHMY
Nabil Fahmy, a former foreign minister of Egypt, is dean of the School of Global Affairs and Public Policy at the American University in Cairo. He served as Egypt’s ambassador to the United States from 1999–2008, and as envoy to Japan between 1997 and 1999. 

THE NEW MIDDLE EAST, IRAN NUCLEAR DEAL AND THE ARABS
Nabil Fahmy says Arabs have to deal with the regional situation, including the Iranian deal, seriously and objectively. Simply making statements will not deter threats or safeguard interests. Egypt's former foreign minister calls for independent and concrete Arab proposals. READ MORE
REMEMBERING SAUD AL-FAISAL
Saudi Arabia's longtime minister of foreign affairs, Prince Saud Al-Faisal passed away this Ramadan. He was among the kingdom's most influential men. The Egyptian former foreign minister, Nabil Fahmy, reflects on the Arab statesman and diplomat. READ MORE
WHY ARABS ARE CONCERNED ABOUT THE IRAN NUKE BARGAIN
The proposed nuclear deal with Iran is far from sufficient. It delays, but does not close the door on potential Iranian breakout. There is profound concern among Arab leaders, and for good reason. READ MORE
MEDIA POLICY AND FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION
Discussing “freedom of expression” in the same conversation with “media policy” may imply that they are mutually exclusive concepts, but that is a false premise. READ MORE

EGYPT’S PREDICAMENT
Two and a half years after the fall of President Hosni Mubarak, a year after the election of his successor, Mohammed Morsi, and after Morsi’s sudden ouster and the appointment of an interim president, Mansour Al-Adly, head of Egypt’s Supreme Constitutional Court, in July, the country is still searching for its identity. READ MORE
EAST AND WEST
While the consequences of Asia’s rise have been exhaustively analyzed in the global context, relatively few have questioned the effect of a rising East on the rapid transformation of the countries of the Middle East. READ MORE
A MORE ASSERTIVE ARAB FOREIGN POLICY

THE FRUIT OF REVOLUTION
Little over a year ago, no political analyst I know would have argued that the leaders of Tunisia, Libya, Egypt, and Yemen would be deposed in the immediate future. This set of leaders, cumulatively, had been in office for more than 100 years. Nor would anyone have projected that there would be uprisings in Bahrain and Syria. Clearly, 2011 was the Year of Revolution in the Arab World. READ MORE

EGYPT IN THE WORLD
The leadership and vision of Nasser and Sadat gave way to foreign policy stagnation under Mubarak. After the popular revolt, Egypt now has an opportunity to regain its place as a political and ideological wellspring for the Arab world. A blueprint for a strategic shift. READ MORE
REMEMBERING MEDHAT
I had the good fortune to work with a man of great skill and quality of character who was an exemplary diplomat: Medhat Haroun, American University in Cairo's provost, who passed away on October 18. READ MORE
