Diplomatic Encounters

The Diplomatic Encounters Series, sponsored by the Center for Middle Eastern Studies and the International House Global Voices Program, brings to the University of Chicago campus representatives of various diplomatic missions for short presentations followed by an opportunity for open dialogue. This series provides an excellent venue for those interested in the Middle East to hear from leading diplomats and come to a better understanding of the issues, challenges, and opportunities facing Middle Eastern countries.
