In June 2015 Professor Valentine Moghadam traveled to Beirut, Lebanon to give one of the keynote speeches at the conference Upholding Gendered Peace at a Time of War at the Lebanese American University.  The key issues addressed at the conference “pertained to the record of the Arab Spring thus far; the ongoing conflicts in the Middle East and North Africa region; and women’s roles in religious extremism, conflicts, peace-building, and political leadership.”
