Share This Content
Amid all the speculation about Arab attitudes toward pressing foreign policy issues—Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, the Iran nuclear talks, normalization with Israel, and efforts to balance relations with the United States and China—The Washington Institute is pleased to announce a virtual Policy Forum presenting hard new survey data on all of these topics. The findings are from professional public opinion polls just conducted in seven key Arab states: Bahrain, Egypt, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates. Panelists David Pollock, Catherine Cleveland, and Munqith Dagher will analyze the data and discuss its real-world policy implications.

David Pollock is the Bernstein Fellow at The Washington Institute and director of Fikra Forum. An expert on regional public opinion and political dynamics, he previously served as senior advisor for the broader Middle East at the State Department.

Catherine Cleveland is the Institute’s Wagner Family Fellow and managing editor of Fikra Forum.

Munqith Dagher, an eminent Iraqi pollster and scholar, is regional director for the Middle East and North Africa at Gallup International.
