Northwestern University Middle East Forum (NUMEF)

NUMEF logoThe Northwestern University Middle East Forum was established in 2009 to provide a cross-disciplined meeting ground for faculty, graduate and undergraduate students interested in the region. The Forum seeks to provide a space for accessing Northwestern's existing Middle East resources, while promoting the intellectual collaboration and multifaceted approach demanded by the complex issues of the region. The hope is to stimulate analysis and debate through roundtable discussions, workshops and seminars, conferences and publications.
