The Policy Studies Organization (PSO), in cooperation with the Digest of the Middle East Studies (DOMES), announces its official call for papers for the upcoming Middle East Dialogue 2015: Glorious Past, Uncertain Future. The fifth annual conference will take place February 26, 2015 at the historic Whittemore House in Washington D.C.
The Middle East Dialogue is a gathering of policy makers, scholars, business and social leaders, with a common interest on inter-connected issues in the Middle East. The purpose of the conference is to promote a productive and continuous dialogue surrounding current policy concerns, while providing a civil space for discussion across the political and religious spectrum. Proposals are sought from individuals or groups on topics relating to education initiatives, social, economic and political reforms, nuclear proliferation, interfaith dialogue, women’s gains and challenges, peace initiatives, and potential areas of conflict. Other topics are welcomed for submission.
Proposals of one to two pages should be sent as email attachments by or before our early deadline of December 30, 2014, to PSO Executive Director, Daniel Gutierrez. Papers presented at MED15 will have the opportunity to be published in a volume of conference proceedings.
Please visit the conference website for further information regarding proposal submission, registration, and other details about the Middle East Dialogue 2015.
The Policy Studies Organization publishes 19 journals, which includes the Digest of the Middle East Studies, and 3 book series. Our mission is to encourage discussion surrounding policy issues, and promote further research and dissemination of policy scholarship.
