The United States and the Muslim World

The United States and the Muslim World initiative is dedicated to bringing diverse, fresh perspectives to bear on key issues shaping US-Muslim relations. Our projects focus on helping US and Muslim policymakers, journalists, and civil society representatives generate innovative solutions to problems of regional security, US policies toward the Muslim world, and mass media coverage. To promote durable, just solutions, we often work collaboratively with partner organizations to provide direct access for policymakers and journalists to the Muslim world. We also convene off-the-record policy dialogues and publish short policy analyses that spotlight new perspectives.
