Middle East Strategy at Harvard (MESH) has led a virtual existence since its inception last December. But on Tuesday, September 23, it becomes tangible at Harvard, where MESH will sponsor an afternoon symposium under the title “After Bush: America’s Agenda in the Middle East.” This is an opportunity for the Harvard community to sample current thinking from leading foreign policy think tanks, as represented by a selection of active MESH members.
The symposium will begin at 4:00 pm, and will divide into two panels:
• U.S. Interests: Problems of Definition
• Does the Freedom Agenda Have a Future?
J. Scott Carpenter, The Washington Institute for Near East Policy
Michele Dunne, Carnegie Endowment for International Peace
Joshua Muravchik, American Enterprise Institute
Tamara Cofman Wittes, Saban Center, Brookings Institution
Venue: Tsai Auditorium (S010), CGIS South, 1730 Cambridge Street (map). (Enter the building and go down the stairs.) Open to the public. Symposium ends at 6:45 pm.

There are a limited number of places available to Harvard faculty and graduate students in a MESH-sponsored working session on security studies and the disciplines (with some reference to the Middle East). This session immediately precedes the public symposium described above, and will run from 2:00 pm to 3:45 pm. Presenters include:
