Organized by: Netherlands-Flemish Institute Cairo (NVIC)
Venue: Netherlands-Flemish Institute Cairo (NVIC)
Address: 1 Mahmoud Azmi Street, Zamalek
Admission: Free public event

Khaled Mansour will speak about the living repercussions of the 1967 War from an Egyptian perspective, and why it is still difficult to dissect and deconstruct this event. As the editor and one of the contributors to the recently published book 'في تشريح الهزيمة: حرب يونيو ١٩٦٧ بعد خمسين عاما', he will discuss the civil-military relations, decline of Arab nationalism, rise of Islamism, and other issues that led to or resulted from this gigantic defeat that still shapes the Middle East today.

Khaled Mansour is a writer who has worked for 27 years on human rights, humanitarian aid, development, peacekeeping, and communications. He has published three books and numerous articles and papers in academic and general publications and websites. He has worked extensively with civil society, media, and international organizations in Africa, Asia, the Middle East, and North America. He holds degrees in Engineering, Archaeology, Sociology, and International Relations.

Khaled Mansour is now leading a research project on the future of human rights action in North Africa and is a senior consultant with the United Nations, which he left in early 2013 as global Director of Communications for UNICEF. He was the executive director of Egypt's leading human rights organization, EIPR, between 2013 and early 2015.
