What We Do
Mission statement: We, the Middle Eastern Awareness Society, exist to provide opportunity for Students to learn more about the political, economic, social and cultural aspects of this region. We do so by inciting each student to join conferences, debates and informative events and activities. We strive to develop open-mindedness and comprehension towards this unbalanced and complex region.
- Promote insight and awareness on the various issues that regard the Middle East
- Expose the university students to the cultural wealth that the region offers, one that is often overlooked
- Inform students and foster exchange of ideas between them, give opportunity to debate and have opinions without being polemical
Reasons to Join Us
Challenge your beliefs, Question your preconceptions and Gain insight
- Students will get involved as this part of the world has a lot of interesting issues and topics to cover that are debatable
- It is a region which is a source of problem in the whole world and is very present in every day issues (Syrian Civil War, ISIS Iraq and Syria, Arab-Israeli region, Economic boom of Saudi Arabia)
- Only university in the South west which does not yet have a prominent Middle East profile: This is the occasion to give the opportunity to grow this presence while fostering additional curiosity and investment at the SU, university and local community.
