Foley Hoag Counsel M. Arsalan Suleman to Speak on Redefining US National Security at Brookings Institution Program

April 5, 2019

Foley Hoag LLP counsel M. Arsalan Suleman will be a featured speaker at “Redefining U.S. National Security: Interlinkages with American Society and Foreign Policy,” a Brookings Institution program being held in Washington, D.C., on April 5, 2019.

The event will gather policy experts and world leaders for a discussion on the implications of today’s complex political environment in which domestic and foreign policy decisions influence each other. 

Suleman will speak on the inter-relationship between U.S. domestic politics, U.S. foreign policy and national security, and focus on how domestic developments on the issues of civil rights, religious freedom and combating hate crimes impact America’s leadership abroad on human rights and democracy promotion. He will also discuss how the U.S. deals with issues of immigration and refugees, and how it affects the nation’s moral standing in the world.

As a member of Foley Hoag's International Litigation & Arbitration Department, Suleman advises sovereign States and State-owned companies in North Africa, the Middle East, and Central, South and Southeast Asia.

The Brookings Institution is a nonprofit public policy organization based in Washington, D.C., that conducts in-depth research that leads to new ideas for solving problems facing society at the local, national and global level.
