IMES is a research and resource institute with a clear mandate to bring about positive transformation in thinking and practice between Christians and Muslims in the Middle East and beyond. It has three strategic goals: peacebuilding, education, and human rights and advocacy. IMES runs a multidisciplinary Master of Religion in Middle Eastern and North African Studies (MREL) that seeks to help individuals understand issues in the MENA context. Every June, IMES holds a Middle East Consultation that seeks to equip participants to respond in prophetic and Christ-like ways to the many challenges facing Christians and Muslims in and beyond the Middle East. It also runs in the summer a Middle East Immersion internship program which has proved life-changing for many participants. IMES is developing an initiative called the Feast to build friendships between young people from different faiths. It has its own Arabic language school in central Beirut (Academy of Languages and Practical Skills or ALPS) and a popular blog on Christian and Muslim issues.
