Theme: “Women and Politics in an Age of Uncertainty: The Road to Sustainable Democracy and Democratization”
This conference is unique in three ways. First, its cutting-edge content deals with the prospects of sustaining women’s rights and empowerment in an age of uncertainty, where more nations in many parts of the world seem to be rolling back hard fought democratic freedoms. It provokes many new challenging research questions which clearly show that the old boundaries of concepts dissolve and that new approaches and fresh thinking are needed. Second, its international scope aims to provide an interdisciplinary platform and a stimulating international academic forum including all sorts of stakeholders, create many opportunities for networking and socializing with the participants. Third, it is being held in a charming location called Ouarzazate; a city in southeastern Morocco, known internationally for its historic kasbah fortresses and its studios, where many Hollywood films have been made.
