Appel à communications : Middle East Dialogue 2015, Washington (Etat-Unis), 26/02/2015 — LIMITE : 20/12/2014
The Policy Studies Organization (PSO), The Digest of Middle East Studies (DOMES), and the Middle East Media and Book Reviews (MEMBR) are pleased to announce the Middle East Dialogue 2015: The Middle East: Glorious Past, Uncertain Future and its call for papers. The MED2015 will be held at the historic Whittemore House: Washington DC on Thursday February 26th, 2015.
The Middle East Dialogue (MED) has established an international reputation as a focal point for new research, and a forum for the exchange of opinions and different views about issues of social, sociological, political, and economic reforms. In addition, discussions go on concerning women’s rights and roles in the new Middle East, and ethnic and religious tolerance.
Proposals are sought from individuals or groups on topics relating to the areas mentioned above. Proposals can be configured variously as twenty minute individual presentations, or round table discussions on particular topics. Proposals are encouraged to explore present, past and futuristic approaches to these issues and “what if” scenarios, as well as conflict resolution, and problem-solving solutions.

Papers presented at last year’s MED Conference are published by PSO/Westphalia Press and available from amazon.com
