As conflict spreads in the Middle East, Bernard Haykel, one of United States’ leading experts on the region, returns to the 9/11 Memorial Museum to outline the options for American foreign policy. On Thursday, Feb. 2 at 7 p.m., Haykel will lead a dialogue that aims to disentangle the latest turns in Saudi Arabia, Iran, Syria and Libya and possible U.S. responses.

A Princeton University scholar who served as an advisor to the 9/11 Memorial Museum’s historical exhibition, Haykel appears frequently in print and broadcast media, including PBS, NPR, The New York Times and the BBC. He also helped launch the museum’s first public programming season with a talk exploring current events in the Middle East and the violent spread of Islamist radicalism.

Tickets to Haykel’s program are free, but registration is required. Reserve tickets and view the public programming calendar here.

For those unable to attend the program, the 9/11 Memorial Museum will be livestreaming the event here.
