Major Current Challenges in the Middle East

'Major current challenges in the Middle East' is the title of Dr. Pamela Chrabieh's academic presentation during the CAFCAW Conference (December 6, 2014; Tamar Rotana Hotel, Beirut, Lebanon).
About this event:
This academic event followed 3 previous ones in 2014 (Amman and Istanbul). It gathered Middle Eastern Christian and Muslim scholars, religious leaders, media figures and politicians to tackle and debate issues related to religions-politics’ relations, Interfaith Dialogue, Christians’ roles and situations and theology/fiqh of public life. During this event, CAFCAW also launched its document ‘Christians of the Middle East and Public Life’.
Event's goals:
- To bring together Middle Eastern scholars, peacebuilding and interfaith organizations, and political and media figures, to assess the current situation of Christians in the Middle East and Interfaith Dialogue, and propose alternative worldviews, narratives and projects facing the culture of violence.
-  To initiate a regional dialogue among academicians from diverse backgrounds and identities and launch a common platform of thought renewal and applied research.
About Dr. Chrabieh's presentation:
As a founding member of CAFCAW and member of its executive committee, Dr. Chrabieh presented an overview of major current challenges facing most Middle Eastern countries and Middle Easterners, including the lack of balanced politics-religions relations, of pluralistic social-political systems and human/natural resources’ management; youth unemployment and emigration; obstacles to the effective realization of human rights/women’s rights; extremisms and the culture of violence.

I'm amazed, I must say. Rarely do I come across a blog that's
both educative and engaging, and without a doubt, you've hit the nail on the
head. The issue is something that not enough men and women are speaking intelligently about.

I am very happy that I came across this
during my hunt for something concerning this.
