Mickey Edwards spent most of his congressional career in the field of international affairs as the ranking member of the House Subcommittee on Foreign Operations, official observer of numerous overseas elections, a contributor to magazines on international affairs, speaker at the U.S. Naval Academy and the U.S. Military Academy, advisor to the U.S. State Department under Secretary Colin Powell, and foreign policy advisor to George W. Bush’s presidential campaign. Edwards was a leader in Congress’s support for the first Gulf War but has been a frequent critic of America’s seeming insistence on inserting itself into difficulties wherever they occur around the world: not a pacifist and not an isolationist—he has written persuasively for America’s role as a promoter of human rights and liberal democracy and believes the U.S. needs to be more deliberate about when and where it intrudes on the international stage.

Dr. Eid-Oakden is sought the world over to address a wide range of audiences and offers unparalleled depth of research on Middle East and North Africa (MENA) trends to include but not limited to:

  • The region is facing changes irreversibly through the deal with Iran.  How the Arab countries adjust and accommodate to these changes, plus the fiscal exigencies of lower oil prices, is going to be key to both business and stability in the region going forward.
  • How will the 170 million strong North African engine of growth and investment reignite, post-Arab Spring?
  • Islamic finance, a perfect fit for infrastructure investment in the region?
  • As growth in trade and investment shift eastward, are we witnessing a resumption of the centuries-old Silk Route between MENA and China?
  • Suffering from the highest rate of youth unemployment worldwide, could entrepreneurship become a game-changer for the MENA labor markets?
  • In the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries alone, there are over 3,500 ultra-high net worth individuals with a combined wealth of over $625 billion, establishing a large and sophisticated family office sector.  What are the opportunities and characteristics of this growing sector?
