In association with leading academic institutions, the Project will foster discussion designed to increase awareness about the humanitarian crisis in the Middle East, as well as regional and global implications of the conflict. This initiative proposes a model that views Syrian students as an asset and opportunity to promote an intercultural dialogue that fosters an international culture of peace.
