SESAME (Synchrotron-light for Experimental Science And Applications in the Middle East) is an international multidisciplinary research laboratory based on a synchrotron light source, whose headquarters are in Jordan. After a general introduction to the properties and applications of synchrotron light, I will describe the genesis of the SESAME project as well as the path taken by this scientific cooperation project and its establishment as an open space for collaboration between countries, especially in the Middle East but not only, having serious difficulties in meeting on common ground, thus representing both an important resource and science and an opportunity for dialogue between peoples.
