Policy Recommendations on Middle East Minorities with Andrew Doran

| July 9, 2017

Last week marked one year since Congress and the Obama Administration declared the actions of the Islamic State against minorities in Iraq and Syria to be a genocide. Very little has been done to ensure the safety of these minorities in the future. A group called the Genocide Coalition has published a set of policy recommendations for the Trump Administration to protect those minorities. Join us Wednesday, to hear Andrew Doran of In Defense of Christians present a briefing on what the administration can do to protect at-risk religious minorities in the wake of ISIS.

Andrew Doran writes about U.S. foreign policy and human rights in the Middle East. He is a Senior Advisor and co-founder of In Defense of Christians, a Washington, DC-based organization that advocates for ethnic and religious minorities in the Middle East. He previously served on the executive secretariat of the U.S. National Commission for UNESCO at the U.S. Department of State and in the U.S. Army.
