As part of a Carnegie Corporation-funded Project, this seminar brings together a group of visiting Arab public policy scholars to present some highlights of their research and expertise on policy-making in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region.
The aim of the event is to provide a critical insight into the nature of the policy process and how this can act as an important force for social change in a region that has largely been ignored by policy analysis scientists.
The presentations will cover topical policy areas such youth employment and poverty-reduction as well as evidence based policy and the wider politics of decision-making in the Arab region.
Spaces are limited so it is best to book as soon as possible.
