Webinar: “The EU and Syria: thinking about ways forward”, now available on youtube

In September 2020, EUMENIA Jean-Monnet Network was glad to organise the Webinar “The EU and Syria: thinking about ways forward”.

The panel of speakers, each of whom contributed to the debate in an unique way with their viewpoint and experience, included:

– Anis Nacrour, Former Acting Head of Delegation of the EU to Syria
– Yezid Sayigh, Senior Fellow, Carnegie Middle East Center in Beirut
– Tamirace Fakhoury, Associate Professor of Political Science and International Affairs, Lebanese American University
– Daniela Huber, Head of the Mediterranean and Middle East Programme at IAI

The event was moderated by Dimitris Bouris, Assistant Professor at Department of Political Science, University of Amsterdam.

We would like to deeply thank the speakers for their contributions.

The civil war in Syria has entered into its 10th year, but the European Union remains on its sidelines. While committed to humanitarian needs of Syrians, no re-assessment of EU’s policies and measures implemented on Syria in the last ten years has been advanced by European leaders on this ongoing war in its immediate neighborhood.

This webinar – organized as part of the EUMENIA webinar series – took stock of the situation on the ground and in the region to think about meaningful approaches the EU could adopt for the future of Syria.

The integral Webinar is available at EUMENIA Jean-Monnet Network’s Youtube channel.

New article by Dr. Dimitris Bouris “Unintended Consequences of State-building projects in Contested States: The EU in Palestine”

New article by Dr. Dimitris Bouris “Unintended Consequences of State-building projects in Contested States: The EU in Palestine”

“Unintended Consequences of State-building Projects in Contested States: The EU in Palestine” by Dr. Dimitris Bouris, published in The International Spectator.

ABSTRACT: The existing literature on state-building has focused mainly on post-conflict cases and ‘conventional’ examples of statehood, without taking into consideration the particularities of states that remain internally and/or externally contested. The EU’s engagement in Palestinian state-building through the deployment of EUPOL COPPS and EUBAM Rafah has generated various types of unintended consequences: anticipated and unanticipated, positive and negative, desirable and undesirable, some of which fulfill and some of which frustrate the initial intention. These have important reverberations for the EU’s conflict resolution strategies in Israel and Palestine, the most important being the strengthening of power imbalances and the enforcement of the status quo.
