Middle East and North Africa Regional Architecture: Mapping Geopolitical Shifts, Regional Order and Domestic Transformations
The Center for International and European Studies (CIES) at Kadir Has University in partnership with the Center for Public Policy and Democracy Studies (PODEM) held a conference titled "Middle East and North Africa Regional Architecture: Mapping Geopolitical Shifts, Regional Order and Domestic Transformations" on Monday, 15 May 2017 at Kadir Has University (Galata Auditorium) in the framework of the MENARA project.
The Middle East and North Africa Regional Architecture: Mapping geopolitical shifts, regional order and domestic transformations (hereafter, the MENARA Project) studies the geopolitical order in the making, identifies the driving forces behind it, sheds light on bottom-up dynamics, and assesses the implications of these processes on the EU and its policies towards the region.
In order to do so, the MENARA Project poses a single all-encompassing question to help articulate a consistent and coherent research project: Will the geopolitical future of the region be marked by either centrifugal or centripetal dynamics or a combination of both? The project is articulated in three levels of analysis (domestic, regional and global).
The Conference was open to the general public. Its proceedings held in English.
