Sherif Mansour, CPJ's Middle East and North Africa Program Coordinator, will attend Al Jazeera's 8th Annual Forum, "Change in the Arab World: Where to?" The forum seeks to discuss the transformations of the Arab revolutions through diverse activities, starting with a review of transition paths, followed by the identification of obstacles, and finally (among other objectives), the anticipation of the future of the Arab world and trends of change. The forum will host a wide array of scholars, experts, politicians, journalists and youth and civil society organization activists from around the world in order to create profound dialogue on the topic.
Al Jazeera Centre for Studies, along with a number of institutions within the network including Al Jazeera Media Training and Development Center, the Department of Public Liberties and Human Rights, Al Jazeera Net, Al Jazeera English Online and the Department of Innovation and Incubation will hold several sessions over three days. Most of the forum's sessions will be broadcasted live on Al Jazeera Mubasher.
