Roundtable Series on the Rise of Islamist Political Movements and U.S. Foreign Policy

Director: Ed Husain, Adjunct Senior Fellow for Middle Eastern Studies
July 1, 2012 - June 30, 2015

The debate within Muslim-majority societies over the role of Islam in government is long-standing, but more important today than ever before. Recent developments in the Middle East and beyond have many asking how Islamist movements will shape the future of the societies in which they exist, and how the United States should respond to the complex challenges they pose in such areas as economic policy, women's and minority rights, and relations with Israel. This roundtable series, made possible through the generous support of the Smith Richardson Foundation, explores these questions and more.
