The 6th International Forum on Asia and the Middle East

“The Middle East Security and Development in the New Era”

Shanghai, China

September 15-16, 2018

Since the outbreak of the Arab Revolt in 2010, the Middle East has been afflicted with problems that go with conflicts, underdevelopment and the deficit of governance; security issues have become more intertwined with development in the Middle East, and have triggered increasing spillover effects. Traditional conflicts and non-traditional turmoils resulting from transformation have further added complexity to security governance and development in the region. Diversified security challenges and development problems in the Middle Eastern countries also test East Asian countries’ diplomacy toward the region, which is ushering a new era of its global partnership under the Belt and Road Initiative.

With this in mind, the Middle East Studies Institute at Shanghai International Studies University, Chinese Association for Middle Eastern Studies and the Middle East Centre at University of Oxford, will jointly host the 6th International Forum on Asia and the Middle East in Shanghai, China, on September 15-16, 2018 (Saturday and Sunday), with the theme of The Middle East Security and Development in the New Era.

9. International Organizations and Middle East Security and Development;

10. Asia and Middle East Security and Development;
