Harvard Arab Weekend (HAW) is the largest pan-Arab conference in North America, bringing together nearly 1,000 students and professionals to discuss key issues with the region’s most prominent politicians, business people, and civil society leaders. HAW has prided itself on showcasing a mosaic of perspectives and insights on the most pressing issues in the Arab world. In 2011, HAW was commended by the White House as “the premier Arab world conference” in North America.

2015 HAW Theme: Building Bridges

In light of the challenges facing the Arab world today, it is our responsibility to promote a positive, forward-looking view of the region that bridges the gap between its rich history and promising future. We believe that many of the region’s predicaments have been caused or compounded by the disjuncture of Arab societies and marked disunity among Arab governments. Therefore, it is imperative to seek innovative ways to effectively bridge the political, economic, and social gaps that have divided the region for far too long. The 2015 rendition of Harvard Arab Weekend will seek to promote unity among Arab and global communities and bring in inspiring men and women who have worked toward achieving that end.

Harvard Arab Weekend is a microcosm of what can be accomplished when ambitious change-makers put their minds and energies together to find solutions for the challenges that we face today. HAW 2015 will celebrate the Arab world’s achievements while serving as a call to action for its participants to translate diverse ideas into concrete solutions for a shared and vibrant future that leaves its mark on the region and the world at-large.
