IGE President and Board Chairman Travel to the Middle East
This month, IGE President Dr. Chris Seiple and IGE Board Chairman Dr. Bob Roberts will travel throughout the Middle East. The trip features attending the U.S.-Islamic World Forum in Doha, Qatar, from February 16-18, 2008, which is co-sponsored by the Emir of Qatar and the Brookings Institution. This marks the second year that Seiple and Roberts have attended the annual, invite-only event, where both have previously spoken. The Forum “…seeks to address the critical issues dividing the United States and the Muslim world by providing a unique platform for frank dialogue, learning, and the development of positive partnerships between key leaders and opinion shapers from both sides.” Participants will engage in cross-cultural discussions as well as practical workshops. In addition to attending the Forum, Seiple and Roberts will visit several countries in the region.
