US-Islamic World Forum, 2015

On June 1-3, 2015, the Brookings Institution will convene the 12th annual U.S.-Islamic World Forum in Doha, Qatar, with the generous support of the State of Qatar. The theme of this year’s Forum is “Changing Assumptions,” which relates to historic shifts in geopolitical realities affecting the United States and Muslim-majority countries, as well as to societal and cultural norms.

During its plenary sessions, speakers will address several dimensions of relations with and within a rapidly changing Muslim world, including U.S.-Middle East strategic relations, the evolving role of Iran, how to bring about political solutions to regional civil wars, strategies for advancing women’s rights amidst conflict, and conceptions of identity. The Forum will also convene working groups, which will produce papers focused on current issues confronting global Muslim communities.
