Gulliver's Troubles Revisted: The Future of the Middle East

The Community Relations Council of the United Jewish Federation of Tidewater, The American Israel Public Affairs Committee, and Simon Family JCC along with community partners present:


Israel Today @70
with Aaron David Miller
Former adviser to six secretaries of state, Middle East negotiator, public policy scholar
Gulliver's Troubles Revisited: The Future of the Middle East

The Vice President for New Initiatives at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars and Global Affairs Analyst for CNN offers patterns of the past as the basis for comparison to a wandering and clueless modern-day Gulliver tied up by tiny tribes as a means for recognizing that not all foreign policy problems can be solved: not abandoning hope, but perhaps abandoning illusions.

Prior to serving at the Woodrow Wilson Center, Aaron David Miller served in the Department of State as an analyst, negotiator and adviser on Middle Eastern issues to Republican and Democratic Secretaries of State. Between 2003 and 2006, he also served as president of Seeds of Peace, an internationally recognized program in conflict resolution and coexistence.   He has written five books, including his most recent The End of Greatness: Why America Can’t Have (and Doesn’t Want) Another Great President. His articles have appeared in the Washington Post, the New York Times, the Los Angeles Times; and his column “Reality Check” appears weekly in Foreign Policy Magazine. In addition to his role on CNN, Miller is a frequent commentator on Fox News, MSNBC, and NPR.


Free and open to the community.
