    Khalil discusses impact of the Abraham Accords in Armada International

    Leaders in Washington, D.C., have concluded that President Biden will probably not seek to change "the Abraham Accords," the U.S.-brokered agreements that normalized Israeli diplomatic relations with the United Arab Emirates and with Bahrain. Osamah Khalil, associate professor of history, says that "the Abraham Accords will facilitate greater arms sales to the Persian Gulf region. Even before the agreement, the United Arab Emirates sought a greater role in U.S. military planning and operations and purchased large quantities of U.S. weapons." Khalil was quoted in the Armada International article, "New Dimension to Gulf."

     

    Lovely speaks to SCMP about the EU's new trade policy

    Last week, the European Union unveiled a new foreign trade policy that signals greater cooperation with Washington and warns of unspecified measures it reserves the right to take against China to blunt "negative spillovers" from the approach Beijing takes to trade and investment. "The new EU trade policy tries to strike a principled balance between the U.S. and China, with clear signals to both that it will set its own course," says Professor Mary Lovely. "Finding a way forward that is both 'open' and 'autonomous' will be difficult, however, as openness brings interdependence," she says.

    Lovely discusses resilience of US supply chains on Brookings podcast

    Global trade may not dominate the news in the early days of Joe Biden’s presidency, but it does factor into many of the challenges the United States is currently facing. Professor Mary Lovely was a guest on the Brookings Institution podcast "Dollar & Sense" to discuss the resilience of U.S. supply chains, the potential effects of Biden’s "Buy American" policy, U.S. engagement with China, and other early lessons from the Biden administration’s emerging trade agenda.

     

    Khalil discusses the Arab Spring after 10 years on PBS NewsHour

    Ten years ago, longtime Egyptian dictator Hosni Mubarak was deposed. The Egyptian revolution was the high point of what became known as the Arab Spring, a movement that spread across the Middle East bringing with it the possibility of democracy. But for many Egyptians and much of the region, the intervening decade, has not been kind. "I think it's tempting to think about the Arab Spring as a failure. But I think the reality is that it's really still under way," says Osamah Khalil. "Many of those same issues that brought the protest to a head and the challenging of those—of the different Arab governments still exist." Watch the full PBS NewsHour interview, "Ten years after the Arab Spring, democracy remains elusive in Egypt."
