The year 2020 has brought about global insecurity in unprecedented and inexplicable ways. This webinar will take the Arab World, primarily Syria and Lebanon, as a place from which to think about insecurity and crisis. How are these lived? What does it mean to be living-in-crisis and with constant insecurity? How do people imagine their futures when their present is incommensurable?

In this Northwestern Buffett Institute for Global Affairs webinar, Villanova University Associate Professor of Global Interdisciplinary Studies Samer Abboud and Northwestern University Associate Professor of Anthropology Sami Hermez will think through the possibilities for transformative change to bring about collective security. They will also examine how this change is limited by forms of regional and international intervention into the different conflicts that serve to perpetuate, rather than alleviate, insecurity.

This is part of the Northwestern Buffett Institute for Global Affairs’ Building Sustainable Futures: Global Challenges and Possibilities webinar series.
