"Partners for a New Beginning: A New Paradigm for Engagement with Muslim Countries,"
with Toni Verstandig P'12, Executive Director of the Aspen Institute's Middle East Programs and Senior Vice President at the S. Daniel Abraham Center for Middle East Peace.

Ms. Verstandig is currently the Executive Director of the Aspen Institute's Middle East Programs and Senior Vice President at the S. Daniel Abraham Center for Middle East Peace. At Aspen she oversees the Secretariat for the recently launched Partners for a New Beginning (PNB) which constitutes a group of distinguished American leaders who are committed to using their expertise, relationships and access to resources to build a collection of public-private partnerships which broaden and deepen engagement between the United States and local communities on issues of economic opportunity, science & technology, education, and exchange to help advance President Obama's Cairo vision. Aspen Middle East programs also include a dialogue with the UAE, a Lebanon program, the North Africa Partnership for Economic Opportunity (NAPEO), and the U.S.-Palestinian Partnership (UPP), which promotes economic opportunities for the Palestinian people through a public-private partnership, in order to support progress toward a two-state solution between Israel and the Palestinian people.
