Past Event


TRENDS Research & Advisory is cooperating with Hedayah and Friends of Europe for a one-day roundtable debating the 2018 Debating Security Plus (DS+) Report. Debating Security Plus is Friends of Europe’s cyclical online brainstorm at the global level, which gathers thousands of participants from the world of peace, security and defense to develop sustainable solutions to some of the most pressing security problems. The Report sets out the 10 top recommendations addressing practical policy goals and shifts in security thinking, underpinned by a realistic roadmap for implementation.

This event will focus on Recommendation 7, “Use criminal rehabilitation programs as a model for re-integrating violent extremists back into society” and Recommendation 9 “Include both Nuclear and Non-Nuclear States to Guide the Process of Tangible Denuclearisation.”

The event offers the opportunity for locally-based experts, youth, academia, private sector and policy makers to discuss in depth the recommendations and their applicability in the MENA region.
