Event Description

Event link: http://www.mepeace.org/events/mepeace-chat-feb-13

 

 

Due to recent events, we have decided to postpone the third workshop of our current series on a future 'Palestinian state' to a later date, and instead hold a workshop on the 'Transformation in the Arab World'.

 

Currently, the world media has a dominant topic: the 'revolutions' in Tunisia and Egypt, and the protests of the young generation against corrupt and ignorant autocrats.

 

What took us all by surprise could have happened much earlier, arguably. But finally, fortunately, the citizens of Tunisia, Egypt, Jordan, Yemen, Syria and Palestine take on the streets and publicly express their anger.

 

Let's discuss the transformation of the Arab world. We are currently witnessing an open process - no one can say what the final results will be, but we can be certain that the Arab world will never again be as it was before the protests began.

 

The leading questions for our workshop on the 'Transformation in the Arab World' will be:

 

Why do the citizens of various Arab states want to get rid of their ruling elite?

 

What role do the Western states and Israel play in the current transformation of the Arab world?

 

What will the long-term consequences of this 'revolution' be? How do you envision the (political / socio-economic) future of the Arab world?

 

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

 

Please note that the event will start on Sunday, 13 February at 20.00 Jerusalem time, in the MEPEACE Chat.

If you have any questions regarding the event, please don't hesitate to contact us at dialogue@mepeace.org.

We are looking forward to your participation!
