It is with great sadness and regret that we report the passing of Professor Farhat Ziadeh, the founder of both the Middle East Center, Henry M. Jackson School of International Studies and the Department of Near Eastern Languages & Civilization, University of Washington. Professor Ziadeh was a beloved member of our MENA community, a warm and inspiring presence, and a respected scholar and jurist who will be deeply missed. For our part, the Middle East Center will strive to honor the legacy that Professor Ziadeh has left us.
