Time for a rethink — and a shift away from ‘threatism ’— for US strategy in the Middle East, says RAND team
00:00 / 44:26
Dalia Dassa Kaye, RAND senior political scientist and Wilson Center Fellow; Linda Robinson, Director of the RAND Center for Middle East Public Policy; and Jeffrey Martini, RAND Senior Middle East researcher, discuss a new approach to US partnerships and policy in the Middle East; how Iran can be ‘right sized’ in US strategy toward the region; the increasing importance of  Iraq as a regional partner for the United States; why the US should still win the battle for influence with Russia and China; and how US policy tools can be recast to reach out to the region’s next generation.
