On Thursday May 5 Islam Qasem, who works at The Hague Centre for Strategic Studies, and Roland Freudenstein, Head of Research and Deputy Director of the Centre for European Studies in Brussels, will lecture on the EU’s relationship with the Middle East.
Islam Qasem will talk about the consequences of the Arab uprisings for European Union member states. After a general assessment of the uprisings and their consequences Mr. Qasem will consider how the political turmoil in the region could transform EU-Middle East relations.
Roland Freudenstein will elaborate more on the roll of democracy and will continue to point out the potential dangers and opportunities for the EU, in the light of the recent revolutionary changes. In addition, he will talk about the EU-neighbourhood policy and potential improvements.
Do the developments in the Middle East require the EU to revise its policies? Is this a new start for EU – Middle East relations?
