About the Symposium

Miller & Chevalier
The Arab Spring and other events in the Arab World have left the international community exhilarated, but they have also left the business and financial world perplexed about how best to manage business in a region facing ongoing turmoil. Larry Christensen, an expert in sanctions regimes and export controls, will offer a practical, in-depth look at U.S.-Iran and U.S.-Libya sanctions, discussing the enforcement landscape, the impact on non-U.S. corporations, pitfalls for U.S. employees and directors of non-U.S. firms, as well as the banking pitfalls posed by the latest of these sanctions regimes.

Mr. Christensen served in the U.S. Department of Commerce for 11 years in the Office of Chief Counsel of Export Administration and as Director of the Regulatory Policy Division.

The discussion will benefit a broad range of people engaged in business and policy, including international business managers, chief compliance and risk officers, financial managers, sovereign wealth fund managers and advisers, country managers doing business in the Middle East, and mergers and acquisition counselors and advisers.

The Council has been granted public charity status in accordance with Section 501 (c) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code. All contributions are tax-deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law.

Vision

The National Council's vision is a relationship between the United States and its Arab partners, friends, and allies that rests on as solid and enduring a foundation as possible. Such a foundation, viewed from both ends of the spectrum, is one that would be characterized by strengthened and expanded strategic, economic, political, commercial, and defense cooperation ties; increased joint ventures; a mutuality of benefit; reciprocal respect for each other's heritage and values; and overall acceptance of each other's legitimate needs, concerns, interests, and objectives.

Mission

The National Council's mission is educational. It seeks to enhance American awareness, knowledge, and understanding of the Arab countries, the Mideast, and the Islamic world. Its means for doing so encompass but are not limited to programs for leadership development, people-to-people exchanges, lectures, publications, an annual Arab-U.S. Policymakers Conference, and the participation of American students and faculty in Arab world study experiences. As a public service, the Council also serves as an information clearinghouse and participant in national, state, and local grassroots outreach to media, think tanks, and select community, civic, educational, religious, business, and professional associations. In these ways the Council helps strengthen and expand the overall Arab-U.S. relationship.
