Great Decisions: Regional Security in the Red Sea
Tuesday, February 25, 2020
(Weekly Simulcast of Great Decisions 2020)
REGIONAL SECURITY IN THE RED SEA
Steve Dalzell, senior defense policy researcher, RAND Corporation
Vital to global trade since the time of ancient Egypt, how do we ensure security in the Red Sea? Protecting the Red Sea is vitally important to all trading nations who export and import through the region, but conflict in Yemen as well as piracy and terrorism on the Arabian Peninsula and African continent threaten that security.
A retired colonel in the U.S. Army Reserve, Steve Dalzell now serves as a senior defense policy researcher at RAND. Specializing in U.S. foreign policy, peace and conflict resolution, African security, and veteran issues, Dr. Dalzell will outline the threats that affect this region of the world, and how global cooperation can be possible.
