MENA Inside Out: Political, Economic and Social Transformations in the Region

International Development Policy

Auditorium Ivan Pictet
Maison de la paix, Geneva

What does the future hold for the MENA region? How can we understand different development trajectories? Are western notions of modernization and democratization misplaced? Join International Development Policy for the launch event of its two most recent thematic issues: Combining Economic and Political Development – The Experience of MENA (Issue 7) and Development as a Battlefield (Issue 8). The panelists will share provocative and sometimes contrasting views on development in the region.
