Workshops and Conferences

The al-Sabah programme supports a range of conferences and workshops that bring together students (both undergraduate, postgraduate taught and postgraduate research) as well as academics and practitioners. This is fully in line with developing ‘grass-roots’ interests in the range of themes and conceptual approaches embraced by the Programme while encouraging a new generation of scholars to think critically on a series of issues related to global significance.

In particular, the Programme will seek to continue to support early career researchers wishing to organise workshops and conferences covering issues of geopolitical as well as strategic importance for the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region. The value of such support is to be realised in the intellectual as well as practical legacy such workshops yield in the development of the next generation of scholars.
