The aim of this conference is to launch a new wave of conversations about power, order,and uprising with a focus on the Middle East and beyond. The conference will discuss unseen aspects of global, regional, and political economy. It will also highlight the regional and global dimensions of those forms of constitution writing, social and democratic mobilization and social-justice activism that are ignored in the dominant framework of ”Islamists versus autocrats”. The conference will link high-profi le academics representing Berlin‘s very strong cluster of Middle East and Islamic studies institutes, high-ranking activists and politicians.
