Discussions have included regional developments such as the Arab Spring, the rise of extremism, as well as issues such as social justice, citizenship, and economies of transition. These meetings have taken place in the center’s headquarters in Beirut, Lebanon, as well as at the first Middle East Think Tank Summit in Istanbul, Turkey.
