The Impact of the Pandemic on Young People

This study provides insights into the group of participants in the "Young Leaders" programme of the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung in the Middle East and North Africa and their experience of the Covid-19 crisis in 2020. Most of them are young, educated and socially engaged members of their countries’ middle classes.

The Inadequacy of the Bilateral European Neighbourhood Policy Framework Amid Regional Security Challenges

Over the past decades, various regional and international stakeholders have given great importance to the Mediterra-nean basin due to the central place it occupies on the inter-national security scene. Given the geographical proximity of the Mediterranean and the European Union (EU), a causal link was naturally established between the stability of the former and the security of the latter. The Mediterranean has always been at the heart of the security order in Europe with a focus on the Middle East, and the subject of debates preceding the launch of the Euro-Mediterranean Partnership (EMP).

Radicalization during the ROUHANI years

At the start of 2021, the political momentum in Iranian domestic and foreign affairs lies squarely with the radicals. The efforts at internal reform and international engage-ment by the government of President Hassan Rouhani had failed, by and large, to deliver tangible results for Iran and its people.

Feminist critique of neoliberalism in the Middle East and North Africa

The feminist economy first emerged in the early 20th century, with an emphasis on the impact of gender on the weakness and fragility of early industrial transformation. Because of the traditional division of labour, where men tend to work in paid jobs and women do unpaid work at home, women are economically weaker and more vulnerable. Although work has been class (keeping in mind that working-class women do not have the well-being to live without work and according to interdependence (so-called parental contract), there was no real recognition of unpaid child care in economic well-being- and it was easier to replace and and it was easier to replace and cancel in the event of a family breakdown.
