The MENARA Booklets are a series of publications, created under the MENARA Project framework, which provide insights on the Middle East and North Africa regional order. These Booklets translate scholarly-sounded research into helpful insights for practitioners, including humanitarian agencies; development agencies and NGOs; the private sector; and academia. In each of the four Booklets you may find a compendium of articles and extracts covering the most pressing issues for your field of expertise.
The MENARA Booklet for the Humanitarian Sector provides you stateof-the-art and thoughtful analysis which may help your organization to better address challenges and inform your daily decisions. It includes our researchers’ main ideas on topics like demographic, economic and environmental factors shaping violence in the region; militarization and armed group proliferation; the erosion of the authoritarian state; Turkey’s and Lebanon’s responses to refugee movements; and regional implications of the situation in Gaza, the Syrian and Yemeni wars and the post-conflict scenario in Libya. All these, read together, would offer a comprehensive picture of the most critical elements affecting the humanitarian reality of the region.
