First annual MENA conference takes place in Nottingham

The first annual Middle East and North Africa conference took place at the Nottingham Conference Centre on Thursday 10 April 2014.

The Nottingham Conference Centre recently hosted the first Middle East and North Africa Research Cluster annual conference, which looked at 'Relocation, Continuity and Transformation in Middle East-Asia Relations’.

An interdisciplinary conference, it explored the implications of change and transformation in the Middle East and North Africa. The conference brought together a network of established scholars along with early-career and postgraduate researchers and featured speakers based not only in Britain but also the Czech Republic, Germany and Pakistan.

Principal lecturer at NTU, John Gorry commented on the "varied and international selection of speakers and participants who spent a useful day exchanging ideas and networking" calling the undertaken debates, and the conference "first class".

The conference was organised by Dr Imad El-Anis, the Head of NTU's 'Middle East and North Africa Research Cluster' with support from doctoral student Sahra Joharchi. It showcases the University's commitment to advancing understanding and knowledge in this area.
