Polityka B. Obamy wobec Bliskiego Wschodu

David Jervis

Streszczenie w języku polskim

W artykule dokonano analizy polityk administracji prezydenta B. Obamy wobec Bliskiego Wschodu. Od samego początku ich priorytetem była redukcja roli USA w regionie oraz promowanie pokoju między Izraelczykami a Palestyńczykami. Arabska Wiosna przyczyniła się do powstania wielu nowych, wcześniej nie występujących wyzwań, z którymi musiała się zmierzyć administracja. Prezydent Obama nie osiągnął większości swoich celów, a wyjaśnienie kontekstu i przyczyn tych niepowodzeń zawarto w podsumowaniu artykułu.

Słowa kluczowe

Barack Obama, Bliski Wschód, Arabska Wiosna, pokój na Bliskim Wschodzie
