Program News | Posted Jan 3, 2010

Eight students from the New Initiative For Middle East Peace departed today for NIMEP's annual fact-finding mission, this year traveling to Kuwait and the United Arab Emirates. The trip is an opportunity for these students to conduct professional-caliber research in a real-world setting. Each student will be producing a paper on the topic of their choice, ranging from a security studies look at tensions in the Persian Gulf to the current condition of  medical education in the Gulf nations.
The trip will take place from January 4th until January 18th, and the students will be meeting with dozens of embers of government, businessmen, individuals of civil society, and others.

The students are Khaled al-Sharikh, Jonathan Gale, Stephanos Karavas, Patricia Letayf, Chas Morrison, Margaret O'Connor, Seth Rau, and Spencer Russ.
