    The Malta Conferences Foundation (MCF), an independent nonprofit, proposes to use science as a bridge to peace in the Middle East. Instability and uncertainty are intensified by political, religious, and cultural differences and aggravated by water and energy scarcity, climate change, and nuclear proliferation. MCF pioneered science diplomacy in the Middle East by developing mechanisms to facilitate multinational collaborations that break down barriers. MCF proved that conferences involving scientists from 15 Middle East countries create an effective platform to initiate successful collaborative efforts. Using this approach, several Middle East countries developed international projects that benefit the environment and the people in the region. An institute at Northwestern University will provide an intellectual incubator to facilitate the collaborations seeded in the conferences. These collaborations are the means to achieve durable peace and stability in the Middle East, which will benefit the region and the world. Show less
