Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates recently joined the small club of Arab countries that have diplomatic relations with the state of Israel. The normalization of relations between Israel and these two Gulf states reflect a shift in priorities in the region, as well as in the Trump administration's foreign policy strategy in the Middle East. Join the NCAFP as we host a panel of distinguished experts as they discuss their perspectives on these new U.S. brokered alliances, and what the future of the region holds in store.
The event will be conducted via the video conferencing platform Zoom, which works on PC, Mac, or mobile devices. You do not need to create an account to use it. Guests will have the option to join the meeting through the Zoom application, or by calling in by phone.
In order to streamline the Q&A portion of the conversation, all guests will have their video feeds disabled. We ask that guests submit all questions through the Q&A function or the chat box. If you don't wish to use these functions, or will join by phone, please submit questions in advance or real time to email@example.com .
This event is open to NCAFP Members and the public.
