Mission Statement

The mission of FSMES is to foster a better understanding of all matters related to the region among our members. We focus on the historical, political, economic, cultural and social issues of the region and do this through a continuing series of lectures by experts from academia, think tanks and government. The sessions encourage both audience participation and a frank exchange of ideas on every facet of life in the Middle East.

The Florida Society for Middle East Studies is the largest Middle East Studies organization in the United States.

The membership fee is $80.00 per year per person and guests are $20.00 per person.
