Untapped Potential : US Science and Technology Cooperation with the Islamic World

There has been much discussion about how the United States can improve its relationship and general standing throughout the Islamic world, and despite the best intentions of many policy-makers, policy initiatives, and politicians, it would seem that there are few options that may work. This intriguing 112-page paper from the Brookings Institution (authored by Michael A. Levi and Michael B. d'Arcy) suggests that the respect held for American science and technology may serve as a valuable channel for cooperation. The authors suggest that any coherent strategy should focus on a number of aspects, including a focus on applying technology, taking advantage of Islamic world diasporas (such as the numerous scholars from the Islamic world who are in the United States), and maintaining modest expectations overall.
