Middle East Strategy Task Force Co-Chairs Madeleine Albright and Stephen Hadley join The Diane Rehm Show to discuss the US role in the conflict in Syria and their strategy for engagement in the region.
Please join the Atlantic Council on Wednesday, Nov 30th from 12:00-2:00 pm for a conversation with former US Secretary of State Madeleine Albright and former US National Security Adviser Stephen Hadley for the exclusive global release of their new Middle East Strategy Task Force (MEST) report.
The Middle East is not condemned to a debilitating cycle of conflict. There is nothing inevitable or unfixable about what ails the states of the region today. Still, the current reality is alarmingly clear: a global crisis emanating from the Middle East convulsing much of the region in instability and violence, while projecting the threat and reality of terrorism and disruption far beyond.

The Middle East and North Africa is experiencing a demographic youth surge that, depending on how governments respond, could present a liability or an exciting possibility to shape a new generation’s future.
The upending of the Middle Eastern order since 2011 came about primarily because of failures of governance. We must properly understand the why and how of this Middle Eastern breakdown if we are to recognize and commit to the work that is truly necessary to build a new, secure, and durable regional order. Investing in sustainable governance is important for the world and for the rising generation of young Arabs, who can either become a force for tremendous progress or a generation lost to violence and despair.
