Forthcoming Events

The Forum sponsors lunches, webinars, live briefings, parlor meetings, and conference calls featuring its staff and fellows, former government officials, scholars, journalists, and others with insights into the Middle East and Islamism. Speakers delve deep into critical issues, surpassing what is found in mass media – always with an eye toward American interests. Most briefings occur along the New York-Philadelphia-Washington, D.C. corridor.

Audio recordings and written summaries of past lectures are available.
