A Riddle, Wrapped in a Mystery, Inside an Enigma

March 17


This event is  cancelled

Ambassador (Ret.) Daniel C. Kurtzer will speak at this year's Senator George J. Mitchell Lecture on Middle East conundrum: “A riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma."

The Middle East today is beset by serious problems: weak and failed states, the rise of non-state actors, breakdown of borders, and the failure to deal with corrosive problems such as corruption and authoritarianism. Protracted conflicts – Arab-Israel, Syria, Yemen, and Iran – feed off of and exacerbate these problems. Former U.S. Ambassador Daniel Kurtzer will examine these issues and discuss the implications for U.S. policy in a wide-ranging lecture at Colby College.
