The cumulative impact of escalating violence, failing states, securitization of identities and deadlock in peace negotiation, has contributed to create an arc of instability, which, stretching from the Middle East to North Africa, is tearing the region apart. The infinite crises affecting countries such as Syria, Libya and Yemen are indeed far from being resolved. Despite being intrinsically different at the domestic level, in all scenarios the role of external actors may be decisive for future developments.
This workshop aims to examine the current regional scenario, with the purpose of offering insight and recommendations for managing this situation. The debate will take into consideration the different stakeholders of the crises with the aim of constructively thinking of a long-term solution.
