Reconciliation in Divided Societies: Perspectives from Arab Countries

Facilitator: Engy M. Ibrahim

Hosted by Carter School Reconciling Conflicts and Intergroup Divisions Lab

Ten years since the outbreak of Arab revolutions, many Arab countries remain hampered by intra-state conflicts, terrorism and geopolitical competition. At the time when many countries in the region are witnessing a wave of unprecedented violence, envisioning a process for conflict resolution and peacebuilding becomes crucial to resolve historical problems and root causes of conflicts in the region. At the core of this process comes reconciliation. In general terms, reconciliation refers to finding common grounds. It is a process of uniting divided societies and restoring broken relationships to create social cohesion. Reconciliation is an instrument for transforming conflicts in divided societies into peace. Yet, it remains largely unclear what reconciliation actually entails. This event will bring together academics and practitioners from Syria, Lebanon and Yemen to share their perspectives and work on reconciliation in divided societies.

Speakers:

  • Mr. Jamal Soliman: Renowned Syrian TV Actor
  • Mrs. Hiba Huneini: Manager of Youth & Civic Engagement Department – Hariri Foundation for Sustainable Human Development
  • Ms. Sara Al-Mahbashi: Researcher at the Department for Women and Gender Studies – University of Lethbridge, Canada
