Current affairs in the Middle East are most troubling, and the prospects for relaxation, despite American presidents’ good will and initiatives, are still grim. The media are not doing a very good job in educating the public of all the aspects and facts of the present multifaceted conflicts. The coverage is insufficient and often biased. Since 2008, a study-group is convened in the university to discuss Middle Eastern affairs in general, and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict in particular.

We support the values of justice, peace, human rights, security for all, tolerance, academic freedom and freedom of speech.
