  The Arabian Peninsula is home to nine countries, all of them with unique perspectives, historical contexts, and economic development levels. What are the key issues of the broader region? What are America’s interests here today and with which Arabian countries are we working most closely and effectively to achieve those interests? With which are we in conflict over achieving our interests? Since the dramatic increase in Middle East unrest, where do the Arabian Peninsula countries lie on a spectrum of stability?

Dr. Russ joined the Foreign Service in 2013 as an Economic Officer.
She has served in Mumbai, India; London, UK; and is now in
Washington DC in the Office of Arabian Peninsula Affairs.
