No aspect of life is unweathered by the pandemic, but some countries/regions are taking harder hits than others – not just merely in terms merely case numbers and death counts, but in terms of the long-term, reverberating impact of the pandemic.
In particular, the MENA region, which even before the outbreak, was fragile economically, socially, and politically, has become more vulnerable and susceptible to enduring negative consequences of the virus.
The key question is how will the pandemic impact the current trends in conflict and fragility facing the region, including, but not only, the economy, intra-community tensions, migration, grievances against the state and traditional social structures, corruption, as well as the global and regional order?
Join the AUC School of Business John D. Gerhart Center's tenth session of their webinar series: The Aftermath of COVID-19: The New Social Impact Ecosystem, with the aim of discussing concepts that are currently not mainstream and may, or perhaps should, become mainstream in the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The webinar, titled: 'Fragility and Conflict in the Aftermath of COVID-19' will be led by Elie Abouaoun, director, MENA Program-United States Institute of Peace, who will dive deep into the unfolding and anticipated trends in fragility in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, which are shaping and reshaping conflict in the MENA region.
