DALLAS – Aaron David Miller — a Washington D.C.-based Middle East analyst, author and negotiator — will keynote an AJC Dallas-sponsored event at 7 p.m. Tuesday, March 15.
The special public program titled “The Middle East: Conflict and Crisis, Where Do We Go From Here?” takes place at the Communities Foundation of Texas’ Mabel Peters Caruth Center, 5500 Caruth Haven Lane at Central Expressway in Dallas.
Miller, 66 — vice president for new initiatives at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars — said he expects to focus his comments on the situation between the United States and the Middle East.
“I will lay out the challenges that face the United States and the Middle East and (discuss) how these problems have no clear-cut solution in a region we can’t transform and we can’t lead,” he said. “That is a difficult place to be.”
Miller said he probably also will discuss major problems he foresees the U.S. confronting in the Middle East.
This includes but is not limited to Iraq, the absence of democracy, Iran’s quest for nuclear weapons and the continuing conundrum of outcomes without practical solutions.
Miller has been an adviser to both Republican and Democratic secretaries of state. In 2014, he published his fifth book, The End of Greatness: Why America Can’t Have (and Doesn’t Want) Another Great President.
The evening begins with a special private Marshall Society reception for Miller at 6:30 p.m.
Registration for the event begins at 7 p.m. and the public program itself starts at 7:30 p.m.
