From 31 October to 2 November 2022, PAVE partners Juline Beaujouan and Amjed Rasheed (OTT) participated in the MERI Forum in Erbil, Iraq. The MERI Forum is a high-level policy event that is held annually in Iraq, bringing together local, national and international policymakers, academics, civil society leaders, journalists, diplomats and opinion-leaders to debate high-priority issues that are affecting both Iraq and the wider region, and offer solutions.

In order to bring the collaboration with PAVE’s sister project PREVEX further, they participated in a PREVEX-organised panel entitled Prevention of Violent Extremism in the Middle East, which kick-started the forum on the evening of 31st October.

In addition, Juline Beaujouan joined the PREVEX team for the recording of the second episode of their podcast series. Read more about the series and watch a recording of the podcast here.
