U.S./Middle East Project
The U.S./Middle East Project was established in 1994 by the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) under the direction of Henry Siegman. In 2006, the U.S./Middle East Project became an independent policy institute. Its mission is to provide non-partisan analysis of the Middle East peace process and to present policymakers in the United States, in the region, and in the larger international community with balanced policy analysis and policy options to prevent conflict and promote stability, democracy, modernization and economic development throughout the region.
The U.S./Middle East Project pursues its mission through a range of activities that include studies, periodicals and publications, conferences, consultations with heads of states in the region, and collaboration with a wide range of international agencies pursuing similar goals.
