Here is the official announcement for this year’s Middle East Conference organised by the Institute of Middle East Studies in Beirut, Lebanon.

The Institute of Middle East Studies

This week, we take a break from the norm once again to remind you of the Institute of Middle East Studies’ annual Middle East Conference (MEC 2013) entitled “Your Rights & My Responsibilities: Biblical & Islamic Perspectives on Human Rights” taking place at the Arab Baptist Theological Seminary, Beirut, from June 17 – 21, 2013.

In line with the IMES Mandate (to bring about positive transformation in thinking and practice between Christians and Muslims in the Middle East and beyond) MEC 2013 seeks to enable Christians to gain insights into the Biblical, theological and philosophical foundations of human rights as well as Islamic understandings and practices concerned with human rights, touching upon topics related to religious rights and freedoms, freedom of expression and ‘the defense of God’, the Arab Uprisings, human trafficking, children’s rights, the Lebanese sex trade, and domestic workers in the MENA context.
