37th Annual Keynote Author 3

Dennis Ross

Doomed to Succeed

For more than a decade, Dennis Ross played a leading role in shaping U.S. involvement in the Middle East peace process. A highly skilled diplomat, Ross was the U.S. point man on the peace process during both the George H. W. Bush and Bill Clinton administrations. He was instrumental in assisting Israelis and Palestinians to reach the 1995 Interim Agreement; he also successfully facilitated the 1994 Israel-Jordan peace treaty and worked intensively to bring Israel and Syria together.

Prior to his service under Clinton, Ross directed the State Department’s Policy Planning Staff in the first Bush administration. In that capacity, he played a prominent role in U.S. policy toward the former Soviet Union, the unification of Germany and its integration into NATO, arms control negotiations, and the 1991 Gulf War coalition.

Doomed to Succeed is a necessary and unprecedented account of America’s changing relationship with Israel, and offers compelling advice for how to understand the priorities of Arab leaders and how future administrations might best shape U.S. policy in that light.

Ross is the Counselor and Davidson Fellow at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy and a Distinguished Professor in the Practice of Diplomacy at Georgetown.
