Members of the EastWest Institute's Board of Directors met with His Majesty King Abdullah II on May 9, in Amman, as part of EWI's Spring Board Meeting 2018.

During this occasion, the EWI delegation and King Abdullah exchanged many ideas in a substantive discussion about regional and global issues, including the Syrian civil war and the refugee crisis. The King also underlined the role Jordan plays in addressing these important subjects.

The EWI Directors expressed their appreciation for Jordan's pivotal role in its efforts to bring about peace, security and stability in the region, as well as commended the Kingdom’s humanitarian efforts towards refugees.
