Today's Middle East: Challenges, Leadership, Communication
Even in a world of mass communication, instant messaging and real-time connections, we are struggling with major challenges and obstacles. The world is in turmoil and Israel is in the eye of the storm.
The School of Communication at Bar-Ilan University, one of Israel's leading institutes of higher learning, aims to foster a clearer understanding of Israel's unique and vital position within the Middle East.
Through outreach projects like the Chicago Summit, leading experts in fields such as international communications, law, public diplomacy and media shed new light on Israel's precarious situation.

Sharon Evans, International Director for Project Development at Bar Ilan University is the chairperson of the premiere Chicago Summit.
"Communication is what the modern world is all about. The pressing urge to know what is happening at all times is a key component of today's world. Bar Ilan's School of Communication is the hub for promoting national and international media relations.
This upcoming summit will heighten awareness on Israel's position and the role that Bar Ilan is playing in ensuring accuracy in disseminating media communications about Israel.
I hope that this summit will be the forerunner of many more activities involving the Chicago community and I look forward to personally greeting you at our events".
