Senior Research Fellow Prof. Bruce Maddy-Weitzman argues that the 2017 Arab League Summit held in Jordan contained little substantive content, but nevertheless served as an indicator of current political dynamics.

"LAST WEEK’S Arab League summit conference, hosted by Jordan’s King Abdullah on the eastern shore of the Dead Sea, provided no drama and produced a set of resolutions that carried little weight...nonetheless, the summit provided some insight into the state of play in the Arab region."
