Today on Your Call: What’s US foreign policy in the Middle East?


On today’s Your Call, we’ll have a conversation about how the uprisings in the Arab world are reshaping the US foreign policy in the Middle East. Secretary of State John Kerry has brokered new negotiations between the Israelis and the Palestinians – but it’s been overshadowed by the bloody crackdown in Egypt. What are the goals on U.S. Middle East policy? And how much power does the US have in the region? Join the conversation and call in with your questions on the next Your Call, with Rose Aguilar, and you.

Guests:

Stephen Walt, professor of international affairs at Harvard University's Kennedy School of Government

Sheila Carapico, professor of political science and international studies at the University of Richmond in Virginia
