18 July 2016

The Oxford Research Group (ORG) has published a second issue of an Arabic language journal on conflict resolution in cooperation with the Regional Center for Strategic Studies (RCSS) in Cairo, entitled The Difficult Challenge: Dilemmas of Resolving Internal Conflicts in the Middle East. The journal was based on a joint workshop the Oxford Research Group held on the 17th and 18th of April 2016  in Cairo entitled “Resolving Conflicts in the Middle East: An Integrative Perspective”. The workshop included a number of experts from both RCSS and Oxford Research Group, alongside a number of experts in Middle East and African affairs from diplomatic and military backgrounds. The workshop examined the proposition that, in light of the increasing complication of Middle Eastern conflicts and the overlap between associated actors and issues, efforts to resolve the conflicts now require an integrative perspective and coordination between domestic, regional, and international actors. This is particularly true because these conflicts are transnational in nature, extending from the domestic to the wider region and world, and are linked to cultural and societal issues such as identity and local, tribal, and territorial disputes. Therefore these conflicts are no longer just about power or wealth sharing, and this poses additional challenges for efforts of conflict resolution.
