The Rumi Forum organizes a number of study trips to Azerbaijan, Cambodia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Morocco and Turkey. During these trips American community leaders, scholars, experts, members of the media and people from the government  have met with journalists, politicians, scholars, civil society leaders, government agencies and businessmen to learn more about the political, social, cultural and economic life in these countries. During these trips participants are introduced to their local counterparts in attempts to bridge understanding and policy gap between the two communities. The participants are also presented with a unique taste of the host country through the dinners and various activities with private citizens from a wide cross-section of the host society as well as trips to the historic and touristic sites that country is famous for.
Rumi Forum also organizes interfaith trips through which participants visit Muslim, Christian and Jewish religious sites of great significance to all three religions and have the chance to interact with local figures and citizens and exchange views on the future of interfaith and intercultural dialogue. These trips have proven to be of great help in presenting people with a warm and friendly face of the other religion, eradicating prejudice and fear from the other and laying the foundations for further cooperation between the communities.
