This virtual forum brings together MDC researchers and members of civil society, academia, and government from throughout the Middle East and Africa to discuss important contemporary political, social, economic, and cultural issues in historical perspective. The forum works in the spirit of the Chatham House Rule in order to encourage an open discussion and frank exchange of ideas. The purpose of these discussions is to build interpersonal relationships and to increase our knowledge by introducing a diversity of perspectives that challenge our assumptions on a given issue.
Participation in these fora is by invitation only and advanced registration. We will publish short reports following each event that summarize the substance of these discussions.
