The Exchange is an effort by and its partners to promote understanding and academic enrichment through a variety of city-focused conferences in and around the Middle East. During their stay, typically lasting from one to two weeks, students and professionals from around the world engage directly with some of the leading intellectuals, academics and political leaders in the country – representing all sides.

The First Exchange was launched in June 2008 in Beirut, Lebanon. Now, several years on, over 300 students from 46 different countries have participated, with many going on to work as diplomats in their home countries, for NGOs serving the region and as social entrepreneurs.

The Tenth Beirut Exchange will be held August 12-19, 2013
