In 2014, the unexpected resurgence of the Islamic State of Iraq and the al-Sham (ISIS) in the Middle East created worldwide tensions and generated both challenges and opportunities for Sino-U.S. relations. At the same time, negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians collapsed and relations deteriorated into a war in Gaza fueling tensions in the region. How will the rise of ISIS reshape the political landscape of the Middle East? How will the breakdown of the Middle East Peace Process impact regional dynamics? And how will China and the U.S. respond to the changing dynamics?

The Brookings-Tsinghua Center will host Martin Indyk, vice president of the Foreign Policy Program at Brookings for a public speech on the rise of ISIS in the Middle East and Sino-U.S. relations. The speech will touch upon the future political order in the Middle East and its impact on Sino-U.S. relations, and the possible strategic options for the two countries.

Martin Indyk returned to Brookings in 2014 after serving as the U.S. special envoy for the Israeli-Palestinian negotiations. During the Clinton administration, Indyk served as U.S. ambassador to Israel, assistant secretary of state for Near East affairs and as special assistant to the president and senior director for Near East and South Asia on the U.S. National Security Council. He directs the Foreign Policy Program at Brookings of which the Brookings-Tsinghua Center is a part.

After the program, questions will be taken from the audience. The working language will be English with simultaneous interpretation.
