Conflict, migration, and refugees in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA): Building human security platforms, local systems and capacity to protect the vulnerable.

With the Arab uprisings in 2010 through 2011, the MENA (the Middle East and North Africa) region has continually been subject to global attention over continuous conflict, devastation and chaos. The widespread political and social changes, prompting civil war in some cases, have caused major transformations and a series of humanitarian crises that have greatly affected vulnerable populations, including displaced persons, women, and children.

There are increasing numbers of educated refugees in protracted situations such as Syrians. For the first time, we have a surplus of university-level refugees who are not fulfilling their potential and contributing to economic and educational development. Conflicts force refugees to reshuffle internally and externally, particularly internally within Syria, and in other countries like Turkey, Jordan, Lebanon and Iraq. This webinar will examine the human security challenges and possible solutions to these problems and discuss strategies for mitigation and resolution.
