In a little over a year’s time, Americans will elect a new president. What are the key foreign policy challenges from Europe and the Middle East to Asia that President Obama will bequeath to his successor? On 24 September the Lowy Institute hosted a conversation with Ambassador Martin Indyk, one of America’s leading foreign policy thinkers, on the international issues that are likely to figure in the presidential election campaign and that will confront the new president in his or her first year in office. Ambassador Martin S. Indyk is executive vice president of the Brookings Institution. From 2013 to 2014 he served as the U.S. special envoy for the Israeli Palestinian negotiations. Previously, Ambassador Indyk was vice president and director of the Foreign Policy Program and a senior fellow and the founding director of the Center for Middle East Policy at Brookings. He served as U.S. Ambassador to Israel from 1995 to 1997 and from 2000 to 2001. Ambassador Indyk is a member of the Lowy Institute Board.
