Arab Renaissance: Renewal of the civilizational message
ARDD is hosting a two-day conference on April 25-26th, 2018, to celebrate its 10-year anniversary.
Over the past 10 years, ARDD has worked with determination to revive hope and mobilize society towards social, economic, and political justice. ARDD’s aspirations have been to contribute to an all-inclusive and comprehensive change in the spirit of achieving the Nahda – the Arab Renaissance.
The conference has two objectives: building a consensus on the actions necessary for the new Nahda project; and the establishment of the Center for Renaissance as a regional think tank. The goal of the center is to encourage debate among interested audiences and seeks to provide research and guidance for innovative ideas and actions
The first day will start with setting the stage for the overall conference and present the main paradigms and achievements of the Nahda. In the following sessions, participants will discuss and explore main themes of current development and come to an agreement on new avenues to change based on the principles and ethos of the Nahda.
The second day will be dedicated to consolidating and officiating agreed upon actions and, finally, the introduction of the Nahda think tank, the Center for Renaissance.
A conference brief and an agenda in Arabic and English will follow.
