The Middle East Forum sponsors speaking events in Philadelphia and New York City. Each of these provides a non-partisan platform to consider the controversial issues of a volatile region from the perspective of a leading actor or respected analyst. Recent speakers include Lee Smith, Joseph Sassoon, David P. Goldman, Danny Yatom and Bruce Maddy-Weitzman. Our goal is to discuss a current event or situation by delving deeper than what is offered by the media. Lecture topics span a wide spectrum but consistently look at the Middle East with a pragmatic eye and from the vantage point of American interests. Audio recordings and written summaries of past lectures are also available.
There are no forthcoming events planned for the immediate future.
