We held a seminar on Sunday 9th July about the change of the employment of energy resources in the global economy and its implications in the Arab world. Dr. Firas Miro spoke about the great change in the employment of energy resources in the West over the past two decades and how this has affected the political and economic situation in the Middle East.
In our monthly seminar on Sunday the 14th of May, Dr Alachkar presented the results of his Masters' research in psychological trauma which was on "Resilience factors among Syrian refugees in the UK and the role of religion or faith in resilience".
The seminar evoked a lovely discussion after that where many emotional stories were narrated by the audience.
Our monthly seminar, titled 'My story with the Syrian revolution', was delivered on 29th January 2017 by Dr Yaser Aleiti. This seminar was via Skype from Istanbul, in which Dr Aleiti told his story with the Syrian regime and why he was politically motivated before the revolution and why he was detained by the Syrian regime in 2007.
