American University in Beirut Collaboration, 2014-2018
The Mamdouha S. Bobst Center for Peace and Justice and the Issam Fares Institute for Public Policy and International Affairs (IFI) at the American University of Beirut (AUB) are pleased to announce their forthcoming collaboration, sponsored by The Bobst Foundation, on projects designed to promote studies relating to the Middle East, in order to advance the cause of peace, mutual understanding and justice.
This unique collaboration seeks to leverage both institutions’ intellectual capital and mutual interests in order to raise awareness about the politics of transformation in MENA. This year’s theme will focus on social justice. The Bobst Center and IFI propose to study the manifold challenges that confront Arab societies as they attempt to regain (or attain) social justice and move their countries along a comprehensive economic and democratic reform trajectory.
Future projects supported by this collaborative initiative will include interdisciplinary annual workshops, conferences and research support for scholars addressing these issues.
