The Middle East: Thinking About and Beyond Security and Stability

"The Middle East: Thinking About and Beyond Security and Stability" is the title of the international conference organized by the Istituto Affari Internazionali (IAI) and the American University of Beirut (AUB) within the frame of the New-Med Research Network. Several leading scholars will gather in Beirut to address a number of security-related issues, all connected to one main question: What (in)security means from the perspective of people living in the Middle East and North Africa? In doing so, they will shed light on the contours of a stable and legitimate order that responds to the needs of the peoples in the region, on what history tells us about the ongoing debates on security and stability in the region, and, last but not least, on “human security”, which encompasses the dimension of human rights, political rights and social/economic security.
