    This seminar, part of the UNU Midday Forum Series, will consider how recent developments in the Arab world have altered the global political landscape, and the consequences for global governance.

    The world is changing rapidly. The recent developments in the Arab world have altered the global political landscape, with inevitable consequences for global governance. The complexity of the issues involved and the speed with which events are unfolding makes it difficult for governments and organizations to know how to respond.

    How are multilateral institutions dealing with the economic, social, political and security challenges of the democratic transformation in the Arab World? Why was the international community not able to predict the transformations that are currently underway in North Africa and the Middle East? How can we foresee future developments in other regions of the world in the years ahead?

    This seminar is part of the UNU Midday Forum Series, which offers an intimate and informal platform of discussion for the UN permanent missions, the UN Secretariat, UN agencies, academia, NGOs and the private sector to exchange ideas on important topics related to the UN.
