FEW BODIES OF WATER IN THE WORLD are as revered, as fought over, or as polluted as the lower Jordan River, whose vital waters have such rich symbolic value and importance to the world's three major Abrahamic religions. Yet this river of historic conflict has become a symbol of peaceful cooperation, largely through the efforts of EcoPeace/Friends of the Earth Middle East (FOEME), a unique, award-winning, tri-national organization that unites people of the region around one very simple idea: the peaceful stewardship of the Earth.

Join us for a presentation by Gidon Bromberg (WCL ‘94), Nader al-Khateeb, and Munqeth Mehyar, the three co-directors of EcoPeace/Friends of the Earth Middle East (FOEME) to discuss their work along the Jordan River.

Hosted by The Program on International and Comparative Environmental Law at the American University Washington College of Law, the Global Environmental Politics program, the Kay Spiritual Life Center, Middle East Studies@AU, the Center for Israel Studies, and the Center for Human Rights and Humanitarian Law
