The New Middle East

Five Years After the Arab Spring: Political and Ideological Trends

The conference marks the end of the New Middle East project (NEWME) that started in 2012. NEWME has studied political and ideological trends in the Middle East at a time when old patriarchal and autocratic structures in the region have crumbled. Two main topics will be addressed at the conference by panels composed of NEWME researchers and leading international Middle East experts. The first topic addresses the current status of democracy and political Islam in the Middle East. The second addresses political implications of the challenges to patriarchal structures (gender and age hierarchies) in the region.

Brussels, Norway A European Strategy for Gender Equality: Combating Discrimination in the Workplace and Beyond
Gender equality is a fundamental right recognised by the Treaty of Rome in 1957 as well as by the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights. The promotion of gender equality is therefore not only essential from a human rights perspective, but also makes sense from an economic viewpoint. It means equal access to resources, as well as empowerment and visibility of both women and men in all spheres of public and private life.
