Examples of supporting the multilateral systems and efforts to resolve crises incl

    From Political Violence to Exiting Violence in a Global Perspective

    12/10/2017 Duración: 01h41min

    The Issam Fares Institute for Public Policy and the Department of Sociology, Anthropology and Media Studies Held a lecture From Political Violence to Exiting Violence in a Global Perspective with Michel Wieviorka Professor of Sociology, Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales President, Fondation Maison des sciences de l’homme Political violence can be instrumental but it can also be an answer to a crisis or a reaction to frustration. It is sometimes connected to cultural dimensions, including socialization in education and the family. Political violence also has a lot to do with subjectivity and processes of subjectivation and de-subjectivation. Exiting violence does not mean only putting an end to concrete expressions of violence, it means taking into account the sources of the phenomenon and its different dimensions, including eventually instrumentality, the crisis, socialization and subjectivity. Michel Wieviorka, Professor at the Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales, is the Presiden

    The Issam Fares Institute for Public Policy and International Affairs and the Department of Sociology, Anthropology & Media Studies at AUB Held a Lecture The Politics of Asylum Flows and Syrian Refugees in Turkey: A Question of Inclusion and Exclusion with Sebnem Koser Akcapar Associate Professor of Sociology, Koç University, Istanbul Since 2011, Turkey started to receive the first refugees from Syria fleeing the eruption of violence. Since then, the civil war escalated in Syria and Turkey has become the country hosting the highest number of refugees in the world, with 3 million Syrians, and half a million other nationalities mainly from Iraq, Afghanistan and Iran. There are three important factors that are usually overlooked in the flows of Syrian refugees. The first one is about the diversity of the Syrian refugee population in Turkey. They come from different socio-economic, ethnic and religious backgrounds. The second point has to do with their areas of settlement as 92 percent of all Syrians in Turk

    15/06/2017 Duración: 01h47min

    The Issam Fares Institute for Public Policy and International Affairs and The Samir Kassir Foundation held a lecture and discussion The Global Rise of Populism, Trumpism, and the Decline of U.S. Leadership Richard Falk Professor Emeritus of International Law at Princeton University​ Moderator: Ayman Mhanna Director of the Samir Kassir Foundation The last decade has witnessed the rise of populist politics in many important states throughout the world. This has resulted in democratically elected autocrats, the most dangerous instance of which is the election of Donald Trump. Among the early effects on U.S. global leadership are the withdrawal from the Paris Agreement on Climate Change and the buildup of anti-Iran tensions in the Middle East. As disturbing as Trump is what might be called "Trumpism," a series of ultra-nationalist revolts against the failures of neoliberal globalization. Richard Falk is the Albert G. Milbank Professor of International Law Emeritus at Princeton University, where he ta

    Spain: From 15M to the Institutions Isidro Lopez Spanish Parliamentarian for Podemos Discussant: Nayla Geagea Lawyer, Member of Beirut Madinati Spain has experienced in the last six years one of the most convulsive and exciting historical periods of its recent history. From the occupation of the plazas, following the example of the Arab spring, to the emergence of Podemos and the municipalista movement, and the presence of these two political expressions in the state institutions. As any other political crisis period, the pace of events has been extraordinarily fast. As a main example, it has been two years, since citizens’ candidatures won the local elections in both the main cities of the state, Madrid and Barcelona, and in a handful of its more important cities such as Zaragoza, Cadiz, La Coruña and Santiago de Compostela. It has also been two years since Podemos broke into regional parliaments. All this in a still crises-ridden country, with enormous unemployment levels and hugely dependent on
