ACNIS Hosts Policy Forum on Middle East Peace


Yerevan--The Armenian Center for National and International Studies (ACNIS)
today convened in its conference hall an off-the-record presentation and
panel discussion, entitled "Big Dream, Small Hope," on the Middle East peace
process.

Addressed by visiting experts Professor Mohammed Dajani Daodi, director and
founder of the American Studies Institute at Al-Quds University and the
Jerusalem Studies and Research Institute, and Dr. Daniel Noah Moses of the
Harvard School of Education, the meeting brought together scholars, policy
specialists, diplomats, media commentators, political leaders and other
public figures. It was moderated by ACNIS senior analyst Hovsep Khurshudian.

Founded in 1994 by Armenia's first Minister of Foreign Affairs Raffi K.
Hovannisian and supported by a global network of contributors, ACNIS serves
as a link between innovative scholarship and the public policy challenges
facing Armenia and the Armenian people in the post-Soviet world. It also
aspires to be a catalyst for creative, strategic thinking and a wider
understanding of the new global environment. In 2006, the Center focuses
primarily on civic education, conflict resolution, and applied research on
critical domestic and foreign policy issues for the state and the nation.
