Facing the June 30 deadline for transferring power from the Coalition Provisional Authority to an interim Iraqi government, the United States is trying to cope with fallout from the Abu Ghraib prison scandal and increased attacks by insurgents. Officials are also preparing for upcoming meetings with key U.S. partners at the G-8 summit and with NATO and the European Union.

On Monday, Brookings will convene a panel of experts to examine how the political transition will affect security on the ground, public opinion in Iraq, regional stability, relations between the United States and its traditional allies, and the growing domestic debate over the longer term presence of the United States in Iraq.

Panelists will take audience questions following their remarks.
