Protracted conflict and exodus of refugees have cast a dark image on the Middle East. Yet, at the same time, fresh recognition of its geopolitical significance has prompted major countries around the world to establish activities in the region. This new recognition has broadened the scope of roles the region should play for peace, stability, sustainable growth and economic advancement of the world. Recognizing this new momentum and the increased significance endowed to the Middle East, the SPF promotes people-to-people exchange and policy dialogue on critical issues in the political, diplomatic, social and cultural fields. The global issue of Islam (including the issues of refugees and globally-spreading terrorism) has been added as a new project area of this Department.
