About The Fares Center

The Fares Center for Eastern Mediterranean Studies seeks to create an academic environment for the promotion of greater understanding of the rich heritage of the Eastern Mediterranean and of the significant challenges that this region faces in the twenty-first century. The Center acts as a major focus for cross-regional and cross-cultural analysis, providing a forum for the articulation of a rich diversity of viewpoints and encouraging the consideration of policy issues from an international perspective. Lying at the interface between the academic, policy and business communities, the Center is in a unique position to sponsor academic symposia, conferences, and seminars to promote accurate analysis and interdisciplinary discussions.
