This panel will explore the opportunities and obstacles for global philanthropies to work with religious and secular organizations in the Middle East based on shared ethical principles.  Join us as we engage our panelists to understand how the demands for human rights and social reform that fueled the Arab-spring uprisings might affect the funding priorities of international philanthropies.
