Dr Daniela Huber, Head of the Mediterranean and Middle East Programme at the Istituto Affari Internazionali (IAI), participated as a speaker to the Virtual Debate @Academy event on “The Biden Administration and the Middle East: Back to the Future or a Managed Retreat?”, February 3, 2021.
About the event:
“The Middle East is busy adjusting for the Biden presidency. While some capitals are anxious and fearful, others are hopeful. During the Trump administration’s tenure, U.S. policy aggravated regional crises and undermined the U.S. standing in the region. The de-institutionalization and personalization of U.S. relations reduced the American footprint and its credibility. This period also witnessed regional and international powers’ scramble to fill the void left by the U.S. But will the Biden administration reverse Donald Trump’s course or manage a retreat?”
