Content from the Brookings Doha Center is now archived. In September 2021, after 14 years of impactful partnership, Brookings and the Brookings Doha Center announced that they were ending their affiliation. The Brookings Doha Center is now the Middle East Council on Global Affairs, a separate public policy institution based in Qatar.
Over the course of the next three days (June 1 to June 3), the Brookings Institution will convene the 12th annual U.S.-Islamic World Forum in Doha, Qatar. This year’s Forum, titled “Changing Assumptions,” will feature keynote addresses and panel discussions on critical issues facing the Muslim world and the United States.
You don’t have to be in Doha to watch the Forum sessions or join the conversation. We’ll be livestreaming many of the Forum’s top events. You can also follow the lively commentary here on our Markaz blog and on Twitter using the hashtag #USIslam15.
Here are just a few of the topics we’ll be discussing in Doha:
- The Arab uprisings and the next generation of Islamists
- Pluralism in the Islamic world
- Strategic realignment in the Middle East
- Iran’s role in the region
- Ending civil wars
- Advancing women’s roles in an unstable Middle East
We hope you can join us online for these important discussions. To receive reminders for specific webcast sessions, please register here.
We look forward to you joining the Forum digitally on June 1 through June 3!
