Obama and the Middle East: Rebalancing or Just Stumbling About?

A seminar with Dr. Michael Hudson, Director of the Middle East Institute and Professor of Political Science at the National University of Singapore. With the region in turmoil, the global strategic balance shifting, and domestic challenges pressing, the Obama Administration appears to be improvising. In Asia, there is a widespread view that America is in decline globally, that the “tilt” to Asia is not serious and that this Administration is weak and confused. Is that view too harsh? This seminar will look at the U.S. and the Arab uprisings, Iran and the Gulf, Al-Qa'ida, and the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. Is a “pax Americana” for the Middle East possible—or even necessary?
