2005 Conference Program

The topic of the 2005 Camden Conference was the Middle East


The 1996 Camden Conference focused on Islam and the Middle East. Over the next ten years, much has happened in the region: 9/11 and other terrorist attacks showed how far some radical groups will go; Afghanistan and Iraq underwent dramatic political change; US and Allied forces now occupy both countries; the Arab-Israeli “Peace Process” is in disarray; Saudi Arabia has experienced political and economic tremors; and radical terrorists pose a threat to more than one moderate Arab state.

The 18th annual Camden Conference, The Middle East, took place February 25-27, 2005, and examined the challenges faced in the region, the key questions to be addressed, and prospects for success in finding answers in a timely fashion.
