Prince Alwaleed Center for Muslim–Christian Understanding
The Prince Alwaleed Center for Muslim–Christian Understanding is an interfaith institution based in Washington, D.C..
The Center for Muslim-Christian Understanding was founded in 1993 at Georgetown University in Georgetown, Washington, D.C., United States. Following a $20 million gift from Saudi Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal in 2005, the center was renamed the Prince Alwaleed Bin-Talal Center for Muslim-Christian Understanding. The gift was one of two to US universities, with the other going to Harvard University.
The Center is co-publisher of the journal Islam and Christian-Muslim Relations, along with the Centre for the Study of Islam and Christian-Muslim Relations of the British Birmingham University.
On February 14, 2008 Republican congressman Frank Wolf questioned the prince's gift, and whether the center had ever been critical of the Saudi government. Yet he was ignored because his comments were beside the point.
