With the Arab uprisings of 2010/2011, the MENA (Middle East and North Africa) region has continually been subject to global attention due to the conflict, devastation and chaos wrought. The widespread political and social changes prompting civil war have engendered major transformations and significantly a series of humanitarian crises that are great in nature, depth, and their effect on vulnerable, displaced populations and, in particular, women and children. Conflicts force refugees to reshuffle, particularly in Ukraine, Syria, and Afghanistan. Similarly, in the Russian-Ukraine conflict, there is massive displacement of people, with millions either fleeing the conflict to another country or being displaced within their own borders.

On April 26th, join Dr.Kenneth Christie, Program Head of the Master of Arts in Human Security and Peacebuilding, and our panel of esteemed guests to explore the humanitarian elements of these crises, which have created seismic shifts in the political, economic, and social landscapes for their countries and for the wider region. This webinar will examine the human security challenges and solutions to these problems on one comparative basis using such case studies to examine the micro and macro aspects of change and develop strategies to mitigate and resolve such crises and their effects on the vulnerable.
