This fourth White Paper in IIE's study abroad capacity research series is based on a workshop that took place in Ifrane, Morocco in March 2008. The Hollings Center for International Dialogue and the Institute of International Education convened this workshop at Al Akhawayn University in Ifrane.
Its purpose was to examine the issues that will arise as more U.S. students seek to study in the region. Is there enough capacity in the region to accommodate more students? Are there opportunities in countries and universities that are currently under-utilized? What challenges will U.S. and Arab world educators need to address to accommodate more young Americans studying in the region?
