The fraught relationship between the U.S. and the Middle East raises critical questions for human rights. During our LitTalk we discussed the interconnectedness of human rights, policy-making, governance, and civil society in the Middle East and North Africa, and the implications for funders, movements, and political actors. Philanthropy must step up, be bolder, and provide funding to local human rights organizations based on their own agendas and priorities.

Series Information

The outcome of the U.S. elections raises high expectations about the future of multilateralism, global democracy, environmental protection and human rights. The global problems and challenges are complex and will require political, economic, social and philanthropic commitment of all states and societies.

In this series, we’re bringing political thinkers from each region together to unpack American global agendas. We’re looking beyond borders and working to understand the distinct legacies and interconnections to answer one key question: what can we expect in the wake of the latest U.S. elections? These discussions will reveal the invisible impacts of our interconnected economies, lives, and realities. It’s time to debrief and focus on the lived experiences, understanding, resistance, and narrative of the global community.
