CLOVIS MAKSOUD MEMORIAL LECTURE SERIES

Clovis Maksoud Memorial Lecture Series

Arab Human Development and Patterns of Inequality

 

The Clovis Maksoud Memorial Lecture Series (2017) was launched by the Center for Contemporary Arab Studies (CCAS) in memory of Ambassador Clovis Maksoud who passed away in May 2016.  Ambassador Maksoud was instrumental in the establishment of CCAS in the late 1970s, and he remained a steadfast supporter of its activities throughout his life.  In 2007, CCAS inaugurated a named faculty chair in honor of Ambassador Maksoud and his late wife, Hala Salam Maksoud. A decade later we remember Clovis and his long and dedicated career in service of the Arab world with a lecture series entitled "Arab Human Development and Patterns of Inequality." Ambassador Maksoud was one of the chief architects of the Arab Human Development Report, and our lecture series takes up critical issues of human development in the Arab world in memory of his dedication to this work. The Clovis Maskoud Memorial Lecture Series is made possible by the generous support of the James and Betty Sams Family Charitable Lead Trust.
