Middle East Policy Council (MEPC), according to the organization's web site, was formed in 1981 and "has provided political analysis of issues involving the greater Middle East. Through its programs, publications and Web site, the Council strives to ensure that a full range of U.S. interests and views are considered by policy makers." The MEPC states that it challenges "the conventional wisdom," asks "the difficult questions," encourages "a wide spectrum of views," and provides "forums to stimulate thinking."

The Council says that it "strives to fulfill these objectives through three major activities":

  • Middle East Policy - a quarterly journal of political, economic and social analysis.
  • A Capitol Hill Conference Series - forums for members of Congress, their staffs, federal government officials, foreign policy experts and the media.
  • Workshops for high school teachers - daylong training sessions to build a fact-based foundation for educating America's youth about the Arab world and Islam.

Middle East Policy Journal

The Middle East Policy Journal is published quarterly in March, June, September and December by Blackwell Publishers.
