Chat 30 May - After-event-discussion - Civil Society in the Middle East

Dear Peacemakers!

After each Chat Workshop (a new kind of event taking place every second Sunday in Chat), we (the MEPEACE Dialogue Team, that is Cigdem Yilmazer, Clara Singer, Jessica de Souza, Johanna Silverthorne and myself) open a dedicated 'after-event discussion', in order to give the workshop participants and other interested members the chance to elaborate on their points raised during the workshop, share new ideas on the respective topic with others, and discuss with others about the topic.

Information about our event which successfully took place on 30 May can be found here:



Please also see the attached summary (in PDF format) of the workshop!



The leading questions were:


What can we do to ensure the free flow of information? To what extent is censorship challenging civil society in the Middle East?

What can women contribute to civil society in the Middle East?

How much can we expect from volunteer labour?


During the 90 minutes of live discussion in the Chatroom, the 7 participants, together with the moderators, already addressed these questions to a large extent. However, feel free to add anything here. But please stick to the topic


Civil Society in the Middle East



The Dialogue Team won't interfere in this discussion - however, take into account that 'normal' moderation (as in every other discussion) applies - so please observe the Guidelines.

We are looking forward to your comments and opinions!
