Harvard Arab Weekend (HAW) is the largest pan-Arab conference in North America, bringing together nearly 1,300 students and professionals to discuss key issues with the region’s most prominent politicians, business people, and civil society leaders.

This year’s theme “Beyond the present; striving towards a brighter future”, showcases a mosaic of perspectives and insights on the most pressing issues in the Arab world that aim to shed light on unforeseen change in the region’s society.

This idea will be explored in all its dimensions and aspects; humanitarian, political, economic, health, social, educational, cultural, technological, artistic, media and much more.

The event is set to happen from November 10-13, hosting a number of guest speakers who will discuss a wide range of vital topics in an open engaging setting, that allows attendees to network and share knowledge.

At this decade mark, the conference aims to examine the act of striving, and the aspirations of the region's youth to channel their energy towards building the future for the Arab World, beyond its present.

The deadline for application is October 10, so make sure you register early to save your spot.
