The Chaos Emerging from the Middle East
How to design an Integral plan to deal with refugees in Europe
Can Europe integrate the endless flow of refugees or would this be the issue that challenges the diverse values of the continent and leads to its breakup? Do these countries have a robust understanding of the values of these refugees and can design effective integration policies?
The humanitarian refugee crisis that has inundated Europe’s borders for the last 3 years needs a long term solution. Political stability in the Middle East continues to elude regional and world leaders. International laws are being tested by internal pressure as the scale of this humanitarian catastrophe creates stress on each country’s internal structures.
Would these stresses lead to the disintegration of the European Union or would non-European refugees add to the rich mosaic of European culture? In this presentation Ms. Maalouf will provide working knowledge of the Memetic profiles of Syrian refugees, the Middle East and Islam in general. She will provide insights on conditions that create radicalization, and what needs to be done to pacify it. You will also gain insights into the modern history of Syria, and the dictatorial characteristics of the Assad family that lead to the Syrian civil war. You will also learn about the challenges facing the Middle East in the long term.
