The Middle East has recently gone through unprecedented turmoil that is destined to change its political and socioeconomic landscape. The impact of these changes will continue to affect the Middle East for years to come. Divergence and fragmentation of nations and communities throughout this region have reached critical levels, and provided fertile grounds for extremism and terrorism to thrive. It is time for policy- and decision-makers of the region to engage in a serious dialogue and share their visions for a common future.
Building on last year’s highly successful forum, the MERI Forum 2015 will again bring together policy- and decision-makers, academics and opinion-leaders to discuss a range of social, economic, and political issues. Over the course of three days, the conference will aim to provide a forum for dialogue and reconciliation, as well as creative and constructive answers to a range of policy issues.
