As the founder and Editor-in-Chief (EIC) of the Digest of Middle East Studies (DOMES), a peer-reviewed journal published by Wiley-Blackwell on behalf of the Policy Studies Organization (PSO), I continue to promote a better understanding and informed dialogue about issues affecting the region. I am the Editor-in-Chief of the online journal Middle East Media & Book Reviews (MEMBR), which publishes detailed and signed reviews of recently published books and media on the Middle East and North Africa. Along with PSO and its President Dr. Paul J. Rich, we organize and co-chair the annual conference Middle East Dialogue (MED). This annual conference, now in its fifth year, brings together government officials, policy and decision-makers, scholars and business experts to discuss current issues dealing with the countries of the Middle East and North African (MENA). The conference papers deal with a wide range of issue ranging from political, social and democratic reforms, education, women, minority, and interfaith issues. Edited papers are included in monographs published by the Policy Studies Organization's Westphalia Press. My areas of writing and research deal with education, information, communication and related policy issues. I continue to be involved in higher education assessment and accreditation as consultant and member of national and international accreditation teams in the USA and the Middle East.
