“US Policy Toward Iran: What It Is and Should Be”

 

Michael Makovsky is President and CEO of the Jewish Institute for National Security of America (JINSA), which he joined in 2013.

JINSA is dedicated to educating Congressional, military and civilian national security decision-makers on American defense and strategic interests, primarily in the Middle East, the cornerstone of which is a robust U.S.-Israeli security cooperation.

A U.S. national security expert, he has worked extensively on U.S. policy toward Iran’s nuclear program, Israel, and the broader Middle East, as well as the intersection of international energy markets and politics with U.S. national security.

From 2006-2013, Makovsky was the Foreign Policy Director for the Bipartisan Policy Center. Before that, he served as special assistant in the Office of the Secretary of Defense, and was Director of Essential Services in the Washington office of the Coalition Provisional Authority, the postwar Allied entity that governed Iraq, advising senior Defense, National Security Council and Energy officials on Iraqi and Middle Eastern energy policy.
