The MENASP Network Webinar Series is a monthly virtual webinar that acts as a platform for speakers from within the network and external leading thinkers to present their research.
The MENASP Network Webinar Series aims to enable Network members and wider audiences to access new and ground-breaking research on social policy and conflict prevention. The focus of the research should be on the Middle East and North Africa region or lessons from other countries and regions that could help inform social policy and conflict prevention research and policy development in MENA.
