The Middle East forum is an event put on by a panel of local experts from UNO’s departments of Religion, History and Political Science. The event provides an opportunity for public discussion about key issues in the Middle East region. There is no cost to attend the event and anyone is welcome to take part in dialogue.
The forum is held three times per semester where a panel of experts discusses current events in the Middle East. We encourage students, faculty, staff, and community members to bring their lunch and any questions about the Middle East for an open and fascinating dialogue. To stay updated on specific topics and additional experts taking part in each forum please visit The Natan and Hannah Schwalb Center for Israel and Jewish Studies website or Facebook page.
For questions about the forum or to RSVP, please contact Kasey Davis at firstname.lastname@example.org, or 402.554.3175.
The Middle East Forum is an initiative of the Middle East Project Fund and the UNO Schwalb Center for Israel & Jewish Studies.
