Construction-affected changes at Homewood

Middle East is focus of 'Transatlantic' summer
With the withdrawal of Israeli settlers from Gaza, the
drafting of a new constitution in Iraq and the rising price
of oil, Transatlantic: Europe, America & the World
has released a special summer issue on the Middle East. The
magazine is published by the Center for Transatlantic
Relations at SAIS.
Leaders on both sides of the Atlantic have stressed
that finding a lasting peace in the region will be a key
goal of transatlantic relations in 2005, and this special

Among them, Javier Solana, the European Union's High
Representative for the Common and Foreign Security Policy,
discusses the EU's role in Iraq and Afghanistan, the role
of the "Quartet" in securing a solution to the
Israeli-Palestinian problem, NATO's role and the EU's goal
of spreading democracy to the region; Dennis Ross, former
Middle East peace negotiator for two presidents, gives his
views on how peace can be achieved; Rockwell Anthony
Schnabel, the outgoing U.S. ambassador to the EU in
Brussels, comments on transatlantic business developments
in the Middle East; and Fadel Lamen, a native of Libya and
editor of Hi magazine distributed throughout the Middle
East, points out the growing role of the uncensored media
in the region.
Also in this issue, Robert J. Guttman, editor-in-chief
of Transatlantic, gives an analysis of American
foreign policy from President Harry Truman to George W.
