What the fellow says:

"The UNESCO / Keizo Obuchi Research Fellowship gave me the opportunity to meet significant groups of scholars from many countries, not only French and Egyptian. It was like an echo of the whole planet thinking about the dialogue between cultures. The UNESCO / Keizo Obuchi Research Fellowship has allowed me to achieve a deep confidence in human ability to shape a new future and develop new wisdom, beyond the seeming differences between Islam and the West."
