Dialogue across Borders: Emerging Perspectives on Intercultural and Interreligious Relations

For decades, global media discourse has tended to highlight controversial and often negative perspectives on the Middle East and North Africa by focusing on extremism and conflict. Without denying these significant challenges, Dialogue across Borders seeks to highlight voices within the region who are working toward a more peaceful and inclusive future. By showcasing perspectives that more accurately represent the diversity, creativity, and humanity of the region, Dialogue across Borders aims to generate important resources for intercultural/interreligious understanding and peaceful coexistence. Although focused on the Middle East and North Africa, relevant perspectives from other parts of the world are occasionally featured as well.

Through interviews, book/dissertation summaries, media translations, articles, and other diverse genres, Dialogue across Borders provides a uniquely textured view of cultural and religious discourse in the Middle East and its relevance to peace and conflict resolution. Dialogue across Borders (2022 - ) builds on the unique legacy of Arab-West Report (2003-2022), a publication devoted to countering distorted and inaccurate perspectives on Egypt and the Middle East.
