The Gulf Crisis - Political, Economic, and International Implications
13/03/2018 | 17:30 - 19:30 | DGAP | Gulf States
In June 2017, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Bahrain, and Egypt cut off diplomatic ties with Qatar and imposed travel and trade bans. They accused Qatar of sponsoring terrorist organizations, of keeping close ties with Iran, and of undermining regional stability. Since then, the relations between Qatar and the blockade states have deteriorated and the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) has increasingly weakened through fragmentation. Oman and Kuwait have failed to mediate the conflict; international actors such as the United States, France or Germany also faced the same fate.

Employment, Education, and Migration – Perspectives from the Region and Europe
07/12/2017 - 10/12/2017 | 10:00 - 18:00 | DGAP
The Moroccan king’s readiness to introduce reforms in response to the mass protests in 2011 has prevented the kind of radical change occurring in many other countries in the MENA region, and has maintained the country’s relative stability. However, Morocco’s social peace remains fragile. Social unrest has flared up recurrently, most prominently in the Rif region, as socio-economic grievances persist.

Russia and the West
Opposing narratives about the constitution of the geopolitical order cause a communication and security dilemma between Russia and the West, international foreign-policy experts said during a public panel discussion in Berlin. The discussion was the last of a series of meetings of the „Strategy Group Russia/Eastern Partnership“, hosted by the DGAP’s Robert Bosch Center for Central and Eastern Europe, Russia, and Central Asia. The evening’s key question was what a short- and long-term modus vivendi toward Russia could look like.

Closing Seminar of the TRAIN 2017 Programme in Brussels
19/11/2017 - 23/12/2017 | 09:00 - 18:00 Balkans, European Union
A New EU Perspective for the Western Balkans?
The Western Balkans have reached a critical point on their path to EU membership, with serious democratic backsliding in some countries and people’s support for the European Union declining. At the same time, the EU is busy with its own internal problems. With the aim of raising awareness for the current developments in their region and contributing new impulses for the EU enlargement policy, think tank representatives from the Western Balkans presented their research findings in Brussels.

Tunisia’s Rocky Road to Stability (Workshop I)
Security Sector Reform, (De-)Radicalization and Socio-Economic Development – Perspectives from the Region and Europe
12/07/2017 - 15/07/2017 | 09:00 - 18:00 Tunisia, Democratization/System Change
Despite the progress Tunisia has made in the past years, corruption and the high frequency of changes in government have hampered socio-economic development and political reform. These grievances have led to a growing disenfranchisement with the political process, particularly among the youth. Radical groups have been gaining a stronger foothold among politically and socioeconomically marginalized groups in Tunisia.
