Photo for "Lebanonization": Framing Policy for the Puzzles of the Middle East

In a publication for the Middle East Policy Council journal, CMED Research Fellow Eric Bordenkircher argues that an increasing number of states in the Middle East are adopting the attributes, behaviors, and outcomes of Lebanon. This reality prompted him to construct a framework of analysis for policymakers to better address these states. In light of his observations and framework, Dr. Bordenkircher advocates for a U.S. policy in an increasingly "Lebanonized" Middle East that is state-centric. He believes U.S. policy must focus on maintaining maximum pressure on Iran, working with and maintaining good relations with regional allies and minimizing divisions with and between U.S. allies.
