The MENASP Network Webinar Series is a monthly virtual webinar that acts as a platform for speakers from within the network and external leading thinkers to present their research.
The MENASP Network Webinar Series aims to enable Network members and wider audiences to access new and ground-breaking research on social policy and conflict prevention. The focus of the research should be on the Middle East and North Africa region or lessons from other countries and regions that could help inform social policy and conflict prevention research and policy development in MENA.
We will post information about upcoming webinars here also.
The Middle East and North Africa (MENA) Social Policy Network is housed under the Institute for Policy Research at the University of Bath. It brings together policy makers and academics to advance social policy in the MENA region and it was founded to advance, exchange and disseminate knowledge and policy expertise about social policy in the MENA region. This includes providing:
  • Up-to-date policy analysis on the key social challenges facing the region;
  • Information on social welfare issues for use by the wider public;
  • Resources for policy-makers, practitioners and academics.

The network was founded in 2013 by Dr. Rana Jawad as a way of supporting quality research on crucial social policy issues and bridging the gap between policy-makers, researchers and the wider public. Dr Jawad’s research interests include development policy in the MENA region, social protection and social policy in the MENA region, religion and social welfare action, and social movements. Alongside Dr. Rana Jawad the network consists of a core group of globally based academic experts: Hicham Aitmansour, Ghada Barsoum, Anis Ben Brik, Walid Merouani, Nassar Yassin, Ibrahim Hawarin, Elie Mekhael and Markus Loewe. Together, their research addresses such themes as pension reform in the Middle East, youth unemployment in Egypt, child poverty in North Africa and humanitarianism in Lebanon and social assistance in Jordan, among many other issues.
