Since our last Forum we have witnessed a significant shift in the dialogue between the United States and global Muslim communities. A new American President has endeavored to set a new and positive tone for engagement, exemplified by his historic remarks in Cairo. Over the next three days we will explore how much has changed and whether this altered discourse has been translated into substantive policy recommendations and programs. In recognizing the need for a sustained civic infrastructure to coordinate and complement the activities of our partners in the non-governmental and private sectors, we have designed a special session this year entitled “Maintaining the Momentum: A Strategy Session to Develop Public and Private Partnerships.”
