Congress&Making ME Foreign Pol - 38797 - INAF 235 - 01
Congress & the Making of Middle East Foreign Policy - taught by Danielle Pletka, a senior fellow in foreign and defense policy studies at the American Enterprise Institute (AEI). While foreign policy is the constitutional prerogative of the president, for much of recent history, it has been the Congress that has led the way in shaping US foreign policy toward the Middle East. From aid to Israel and sanctions against Iran to the war on terror, the legislative branch has influenced America's role in the world in ways that few appreciate. Beginning with a detailed overview of the legislative process, this course will explore how Congress has shaped the modern Middle East, looking at key pieces of legislation and historical and contemporary case studies. Course also offered as JCIV 235.
