- About the Council
The intricate issues that affect U.S. interests in the Greater Middle East do not lend themselves to simple analysis. To stimulate thinking about U.S. policies and present a mix of viewpoints, the Middle East Policy Council sponsors a Capitol Hill Conference Series.
Established in 1993, the series is aimed at members of Congress and their staffs, opinion leaders, and members of the media.
The starting point for each forum is the same: What are the interests of the United States in the Middle East, and how should they be realized? Forums usually feature a discussion of timely policy issues with a panel of scholars, business leaders, and other specialists. The discussion is reprinted in the next issue of the Council's quarterly journal, Middle East Policy.
Through the Capitol Hill Conference Series, the Middle East Policy Council works to expand the range of voices informing policy making that relates to U.S. national interests in the Middle East.
