Rhodes Saïd Forum on Syria Jordan Lebanon and Palestine

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

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.
