The Carnegie Middle East Center and the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung invite you to a conference, titled From Division to Unity: How to Share Power in the Middle East and Beyond, at the Phoenicia Hotel on March 4 & 5, 2019.

Different models of power-sharing across Asia, Europe and the Americas aim at enhancing democratic governance, whilst protecting the rights of different communities, including religious and ethnic minorities. As many of the conflicts in the Middle East persist, finding an acceptable and inclusive model of power-sharing is essential to end violence and to open a way for peaceful dialogue and a sustainable and lasting post-war order. 

This conference will explore the nuances and potential of power-sharing in post-conflict countries in the region and discuss the relevant lessons learned from other countries as well. It will assess whether different power-sharing models offer viable options for addressing governance crises and ending conflicts in Arab countries.

More details regarding the agenda and speakers will follow soon.
