2020 Rhodes Saïd Forum on Syria Jordan Lebanon and Palestine

"A state of dysfunction?" Weaving a vision from a complex present.

This page relates to the SJLP Forum held in 2020. Please see the event page for the SJLP Forum taking place in 2022


This is the inaugural Rhodes Scholarship SJLP Forum celebrating the historic partnership between the Said Foundation and the Rhodes Trust. This conference comes at a time of a dialectic struggle in the region and of attempts to navigate a state of dysfunction. Join us in a unique conference that will weave in a vision from a complex present. 

We aim to bring the brightest of minds, in a unique dialogue nourished by a mosaic of despair and hope.  Through an intergenerational and interdisciplinary approach, the conference will be discussing three indispensable themes at this time in the region: Economic development, health and culture and education.
