CAMPUS WATCH, a project of the Middle East Forum, reviews and critiques Middle East studies in North America with an aim to improving them. The project mainly addresses five problems: analytical failures, the mixing of politics with scholarship, intolerance of alternative views, apologetics, and the abuse of power over students. Campus Watch fully respects the freedom of speech of those it debates while insisting on its own freedom to comment on their words and deeds.

Weekly Standard contributor Dominic Green discusses the significance of the rape charges against Islam scholar Tariq Ramadan, describing him as "a much more important figure than Harvey Weinstein, Woody Allen, or Matt Lauer.
