Washington Seminar – February 2024

On 14 February 2024, the NESA Center for Strategic Studies held a Washington Seminar Discussion at the Army-Navy Club in Washington, D.C. Dr. Michael Sharnoff moderated a conversation between Hanin Ghaddar and David Makovsky, both policy scholars at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy. The afternoon ended with a question-and-answer session with 32 participants from 23 countries. The talk and conversations during question-and-answer revolved around the Israel-Hamas war, the regional implications, and U.S. policy toward the region. The speakers also recommended tangible steps that could be supported today to help the international community get to a place where we can begin discussing what a solution to the conflict would look like.
