Academic Programmes

Gingko’s Academic Programmes are intended for scholars, public figures and members of the wider public who are engaged with issues surrounding the MENA region. The programme aims to foster dialogue between the West and the Middle East, promoting mutual understanding based upon our shared interests and concerns.

In partnership with leading universities and cultural institutions, Gingko organises conferences and lectures that bring together scholars from around the world to engage and discuss topics concerning cooperation and exchange.

In order to better engage scholars and public figures, especially those from the MENA region, we aim to facilitate their participation with the award of grants and will assist in the procurement of visas.

Our conferences aim to generate wider interest in the region as well as promote greater understanding of its culture, both in the West and in the MENA region itself. Note that by the term MENA, we conceive the region as involving not just the Arab countries, but also Turkey, Iran, Israel, the Kurdish regions, etc.
