This colloquium was funded in part by a grant from the Carnegie Corporation of New York, by the SIBIL Foundation, Vaduz, and by the Government of the Principality of Liechtenstein.

This colloquium convened a select group of academics, diplomats and experts from states in the wider Middle East, the EU and the US for private discussion and debate.
