2018 Middle East Forum

at the Agawam Hunt Club

A Moderated Event Featuring Four Experts Who Will Discuss

a Wide Variety of Urgent Issues and Topics

The Iran nuclear deal, Israel/Palestinian relations, ISIS, moving the Capital of Israel to Jerusalem...there is so much going on in the Middle East we need more than one speaker to cover it all!

Our own Dr. Richard Lobban will lead a panel of three speakers who will each bring to the evening three issues they feel are of urgent importance yet under-covered in the media.  They will interact with each other and engage with the audience in a fast paced format designed to cover a variety of stimulating topics.

About the Speakers

Dr. Hayat Alvi,  Dr. Timothy Hoyt, and Dr. Rebecca Schiff, all faculty at the Naval War College, will be our guest speakers. Our moderator, Dr. Richard A. Lobban, Jr., is an anthropologist, archaeologist, and expert on Eqypt, Sudan, and foreign policy and a faculty member at the Naval War College.
