Last year, Brown University launched The Israel Fund, a new initiative dedicated to promoting new research and educational opportunities related to Israel and the Middle East. Adding to an expanding set of regionally focused academic programs, it'll complement Brown's Judaic Studies, and Middle East Studies housed at Watson. “At the Watson Institute and at Brown, we believe that deep empirical knowledge about places — particularly when presented in comparative, cross-disciplinary contexts — is critical for developing frameworks for understanding and addressing the great challenges facing humankind,” said Edward Steinfeld.
