Two activists from a pro-democracy NGO based in Cairo traveled to Skopje to attend a June 20 Center for Research and Policy Making event on “The Arab Spring and Gender.” The tour was part of a PASOS project to link reformers from post-Communist countries with like-minded civil society actors in the Middle East and North Africa.
The Arab Spring has generated the most serious strategic challenge NATO has faced in the MENA region in decades – a challenge difficult to describe as either an outright threat or an invigorating opportunity, according to a new policy brief by the Association for International Affairs.
Four new PASOS policy briefs were released at “Democracy, Partnership, Enlargement – Challenges for Europe, Challenges for the Polish EU Presidency”, the network’s annual policymakers/think-tanks conference 25 November. The papers address such diverse topics as new media, visa liberalisation, the revolutions in North Africa, and the European neighbourhood.
