A series of 8 live conversations focusing on achieving transitions from violence by understanding and applying lessons from the Middle East and North Africa.
Every Tuesday from 18th May till 29th June 2021
11 AM New York | 5 PM Paris | 7 PM Amman
The combined effects of the outbreak of a pandemic in a fragile MENA – Middle East and North Africa region cannot yet be fully appreciated, but there is urgent need of devising strategies to transition from violence to ensure security and stability in the Mediterranean region and beyond.
To advance this goal, the Fondation Maison de Sciences de l’Homme is launching a series of eight live conversations as part of the International Panel on Exiting Violence. International scholars, representatives of international organisations and civil society will engage in constructive expert conversations focusing on achieving transitions from violence by understanding and applying lessons from the Middle East and North Africa.
Three main themes will be addressed in one-hour panel discussions conducted on a weekly basis:
- The long tail of the Arab Spring and its unresolved root causes
- The MENA region post Covid-19
- Perspectives from the MENA region on future opportunities to exit violence
This series of online conversations will be moderated by American journalist Hal Plotkin. Contribution from the participants is warmly welcomed.
