A Critical Look at the 2011 North African Revolutions and their Implications

"The overarching objective of this conference was to assist a variety of African policy and decision makers and other stakeholders to formulate informed policies for an effective management of the crises in North Africa at these interesting but extraordinary times for the continent. Specifically, the conference aimed to discuss and generate policy responses to peace and security challenges in North Africa and thereby contribute to continuing efforts for sustained democratisation and human security in the region and elsewhere in the continent. It brought together experts on North Africa, both from the region and from within the ISS, as well as representatives from the AU, European Union (EU) and the League of Arab States (LAS)."
