Arab Renaissance for Democracy and Development

Nahda Forum

The Nahda Forum, or the Renaissance Forum, is a platform for the free exchange of thought regarding the most important issues facing the Arab world. The backgrounds and expertise of the panelists are used as a launching point for discussions and question-and-answer sessions based on their presentations. Creating an open space for engagement allows attendees to hear contrarian and maybe even controversial opinions, to learn from other perspectives, and expand on the many components that collectively link to the Arab Renaissance.

Each month the Nahda Forum focuses on one topic, and experts are invited to sit on the panel.

The past forums have covered topics such as the Palestinian Question, the conditions and tools of the Arab Renaissance, and Language Security in the Middle East and North Africa region.
