Interactive Seminar on Iraq War and Middle East October 10

Ukiah, CA - An internationally recognized expert on America’s foreign policy in the Middle East, Dan Senor, will present a 60-minute interactive seminar entitled “The Iraq War and Its Consequences in the Middle East” on Tuesday, October 10 at 4:30 P.M. The seminar, which will be conducted LIVE via satellite broadcast, will be aired at Mendocino College Ukiah Campus in the Little Theater. Attendees will have the opportunity to call-in or email questions to Mr. Senor. The Mendocino College Phi Theta Kappa International Honor Society sponsors this event.

Until the handover of power in Iraq, Dan Senor was the Chief Spokesperson for the U.S.-led Coalition in Iraq and a Senior Advisor to Presidential Envoy L. Paul Bremer III. He advised the Bush Administration on a variety of Iraqi strategic policy and communication issues, and he was the civilian face of the Coalition Authority. Because of his international policy expertise, specifically on Iraq, Iran, and the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, he is uniquely positioned to speak about America’s foreign policy and relationships in the international community.

In his presentation, Dan Senor will examine the limits and the potential for America's new approach to influence the Middle East and address the root causes of terrorism. He will present several case studies including Iraq, Iran, Israel/Palestine, and Lebanon/Syria. He will also refer to events in North Korea over the past 15 years and will consider how the North Korean approach and model might be applied to the Middle East.

Following the seminar, there will be a Question and Answer session facilitated by Mendocino College History/Political Science Professor Larry Prud’homme.

The program, which is co-produced by Phi Theta Kappa International Honor Society and the National Collegiate Honors Council (NCHC), is the second installment of a four-part Honors Satellite Seminar Series entitled "Gold, Gods, and Glory: The Global Dynamics of Power."

Phi Theta Kappa International Honor Society, headquartered in Jackson, is the oldest and largest honor society in American higher education with 1,200 chapters on two-year and community college campuses in all 50 of the United States, Canada, Germany, the Republic of Palau, the British Virgin Islands and U.S. territorial possessions.
