Bard College and U.S. Military Academy at West Point are teaming up for a panel Monday on challenges in the Middle East.

The Bard Globalization and International Affairs program and the West Point–Bard College Exchange will present a panel entitled “New World Disorder: U.S. Grand Strategy in a Chaotic Middle East”. The panel will address the increasing and overlapping challenges facing the United States across the Middle East and North Africa. The panel will discuss U.S. policy toward the so-called “Islamic State”; the aftermath of the conflict between Israel and Hamas; ongoing tensions in Libya; strained relations with Egypt and Saudi Arabia; and continuing negotiations regarding Iran’s nuclear program. There will be opportunities for questions and comments from the audience. The panel takes place at 6:30 p.m. Monday in the Weis Cinema at the Bertelsmann Campus Center at Bard College in Annandale-on-Hudson.
