MEF Policy Forum

The Policy Forum publishes occasional papers dealing with current issues of U.S. foreign policy in the Middle East. Unsolicited submissions are welcome, and may be from op-ed size (700 words) to full article (5,000 words). The target audience is the Washington policy community; accordingly, we seek well-documented essays with new insights or new information — rather than pure opinion pieces or known information. The series will be distributed and published electronically, a format that permits the timely publication that policy issues often demand. Please send submissions and queries to Steven Rosen, series editor, at
