mescIn 2008 a group of young students from Tel Aviv University decided to take the initiative and organize a conference on the Middle Eastern conflict. Fifty students and young professionals from all over the world participated in a five-day series of seminars, simulations, field tours and lectures.

This year the same group of students decided to repeat the experience given the new challenges in the region and the world politics. This initiative is important both because of the quality of professors and expert that will guide participants into a better understanding of the strategic and political game that is being played in the Middle East and for the internationality of the participants. In fact as in last year conference people from Lebanon and Afghanistan attended the entire week, this year people from South Korea, Pakistan and Indonesia have already subscribed to the summer conference.
