Fostering state and societal resilience in an era characterized by conflictual multipolarity and resurgent nationalisms is no easy task. Emerging as the central organizing principle of the 2016 EU Global Strategy, the goal of fostering state and societal resilience is framed both as a means to enhance prevention and early warning and as a long-term investment in good governance, stability and prosperity. In parallel with high-level discussions taking place at the EU level on the best ways to operationalize and implement this objective, the Foundation for European Progressive Studies (FEPS) and the Istituto Affari Internazionali (IAI) have launched a one-year research project examining challenges and opportunities to foster state and societal resilience in six Middle East and North African countries (Tunisia, Egypt, Lebanon, Iraq, Turkey and Qatar).

The results of the project are collected in an edited book volume entitled “The EU, Resilience and the MENA Region” that will be presented to the public in a high-level dissemination event in Brussels on 8 March 2018, 11.30-14.00.

  • Kristina Kausch, Senior Resident Fellow at the German Marshall Fund
  • Ranj Alaadin, Visiting fellow, Brookings Doha Centre

along with other EU policymakers, policy experts, independent researchers, and the project coordinators.
