There is perhaps no greater threat to stability, security, and development in the Middle East & North Africa than the so-called "Islamic State," known colloquially both as ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq & al-Sham) and ISIL (Islamic State of Iraq & the Levant). Controlling a territory roughly the size of Great Britain and wreaking havoc in Syria, Iraq, and Iraqi Kurdistan, the terrorist organization qua "caliphate" that emerged from the remnants of Al-Qaeda in Iraq in 2013 continues to spread its hateful ideology and barbarism around the region and the globe.

To help make sense of the ongoing struggle against ISIS, CMES is thrilled to have Ambassador Frederic C. Hof and Rafif Jouejati on hand for what promises to be a compelling discussion.

Amb. Frederic C. Hof is a Resident Senior Fellow with the Atlantic Council's Rafik Hariri Center for the Middle East. He was previously a Special Advisor to President Obama for transition in Syria and the Special Coordinator for Regional Affairs in the US Department of State's Office of the Special Envoy for Middle East Peace.

Rafif Jouejati is the founder and Director of the Foundation to Restore Equality and Education in Syria (FREE-Syria) and the English-language spokesperson for the Local Coordinating Committees of Syria. She was also a participant in CMES' inaugural conference in 2013, "Resolving the Syria Crisis," and a contributor to our book "The Syria Dilemma."

Lunch will be provided.
