The Middle East Forum of Falmouth (MEFF) is a lecture and discussion series whose goal is to foster better understanding of the problems and possibilities of the Middle East by providing a broad range of information on the history and current issues of this complex area.
To this end, the Forum hosts speakers with Middle East expertise who can provide information and insights beyond that ordinarily presented in the conventional media.
The Forum itself aims to present a balanced program, which often means sponsoring lectures that present differing and sometimes sharply conflicting views, both among the speakers and members of the audience.
The format of each talk includes 40 minutes allotted for the presentation and 20 minutes for questions and discussion from the audience.
All Forum lectures are open to the public and are free of charge.
The Middle East Forum of Falmouth is a volunteer-run 501(c)3 charitable organization.
