This seminar explores the far-reaching political, diplomatic and security consequences of the recent rapid changes in the Arab world, from the perspective of security studies. It seeks answers to the following questions: How can governments and organizations - both directly and indirectly linked to the change - navigate the new global political landscape that has emerged as a result? Have the trends of globalization, such as security threats and migration, helped or hindered the ability of world governments to deal with the political and diplomatic issues that arise from these changes?
The seminar is part of the UNU Midday Forum Series, which offers an intimate and informal platform of discussion for the UN permanent missions, the UN Secretariat, UN agencies, academia, NGOs and the private sector to exchange ideas on important topics related to the UN.
