About CRE

Imagine a Middle East capable of overcoming its challenges.

Our Mission

CRE seeks to educate and empower current and future leaders through experiential regional engagement so that they may overcome physical and psychological divides, understand and communicate clearly and effectively with diverse audiences and more successfully solve regional challenges.

Our Pillars


Understanding broader regional dynamics is fundamental to understanding the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.


We are not involved in political advocacy, and do not favor any one side or ideology over another.


Progress requires involvement of people from different perspectives, including those that one may disagree with.

Critical Thinking

We practice the academic approach of inquisitiveness and analysis. We encourage people to ask questions.
