The program will focus on the dozens of attempted (and sadly, sometimes successful) terrorist attacks inside the United States over the last decade and how these incidents illustrate the increasing threat posed to the American people by regional politics in the Middle East. Also under the microscope is the growing insecurity and present changes in regional politics and how these will impact the formation of American foreign policy toward the Middle East now and in the years ahead.
Dr. Ken Stein is professor of Contemporary Middle Eastern History and Political Science and Israel Studies at Emory University and President at the Center for Israel Education. Teacher of the perennially popular course “History, Politics, and Diplomacy of the Arab-Israeli Conflict and the author of four books and many scholarly articles, he has been recognized for his lifelong mentorship to students, teaching excellence and commitment to Israel education to learners of all ages.
Todd M. Stein heads the Government Affairs/Public Policy practice at Kitchens New Cleghorn, LLC and is a lecturer at the Sam Nunn School of International Affairs at Georgia Tech, where he teaches “The Politics of National Security.” He previously served as the legislative director and general counsel for former Senator Joe Lieberman.
