E2k was recently involved in the production of the U.S.- Islamic World Forum in Washington D.C.
Sponsored by the Brookings Institution and the government of Qatar, the annual event is designed to bring together leaders in the realms of politics, business, media, academia, and civil society from across the Islamic world (including Muslim communities in Africa, Asia, Europe, and the Middle East) and the United States. The Forum seeks to serve as both a convening body and catalyst for positive action. Therefore, its focus is not on dialogue just for dialogue’s sake, but on developing actionable agendas for government, civil society, and the private sector.
The Tuesday evening gala at the Mellon Auditorium featured a keynote address by U.S. Secretary of State, Hillary Rodham Clinton. Joining discussions with high-profile Middle Eastern leaders were Senators John Kerry and John McCain, former Secretary of State, Madeleine Albright, and former National Security Advisor, Zbigniew Brzezinski.
