Washington, D.C. — On Monday, June 16, the Center for American Progress will host a discussion on the uneven U.S. responses to the Arab uprisings and the regional competition that they sparked. Experts will touch on several important lessons learned from the unclear U.S. stance on the conflicts.

In the three years since popular uprisings swept across the Middle East, the status of the Muslim Brotherhood has become a deep point of contention among regional states. Key countries in the Middle East and North Africa are sharply divided over the status of the Muslim Brotherhood and political Islam. During this time, U.S. policy has been hesitant as the United States has sought to define its position in reaction to both the uprisings themselves and the new era of competition among the regional states they produced. This hesitancy has fostered muted responses, strategically bereft of clear statements on U.S. interests and values.

Join CAP as we host Peter Mandaville from George Mason University and Haroon Ullah from the U.S. State Department Policy Planning Staff for a discussion that will highlight the lessons learned for U.S. policy and the path forward amid the new Middle East Cold War.
