Within the framework of the EU-LISTCO project, the Carnegie Europe Foundation will host a discussion on the elements needed to strengthen societal resilience in the Southern neighbourhood.
Europe’s Southern neighbourhood is in turmoil. Libya is engulfed in civil war, Egypt faces growing anti-government protests, and Lebanon is mired in a deep, multifaceted crisis. The war in Syria nears its endgame with the Assad regime still in power, and the normalisation of ties between Israel and some Gulf states – while historic – is unlikely to advance Israeli-Palestinian peace.
The region’s societal struggles, historic animosities, and religious confrontations—not to mention the coronavirus pandemic and the uncertain prospects facing youths—could threaten Europe’s security. The Carnegie Europe Foundation will host a discussion on the elements needed to strengthen societal resilience in the Southern neighbourhood.
This discussion, moderated by Judy Dempsey, senior fellow at the Carnegie Europe Foundation, will include Mark Daou, a Beirut-based political, social, and environmental activist, Pol Morillas, director of the Barcelona Centre for International Affairs, Saime Özçürümez, associate professor at the Bilkent University in Ankara, and Maha Yahya, director of the Carnegie Middle East Center.
