A New Paradigm of Humanity?
Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal Bin Abdulaziz Alsaud Hall, Room P071
This panel discussion titled “Egypt, the Middle East and the World: A New Paradigm of Humanity?” will discuss the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989 and how the world left the Industrial Age behind. The 2011 Arab Spring and the global Occupy movement signaled the dawn of the post-industrial and post-knowledge human paradigm. For Egypt, the Middle East and the world, is this a time for disruption, or a time of constructive sociopolitical and socioeconomic evolution? How has Egypt handled this double leap and where next?
Speakers include El Mostafa Higazy, founder, NASAQ Foundation, humanist, strategic thinker and authority on Institutional Sustainable Development, and national strategic adviser to Egypt’s Former Interim President Adly Mansour, as well as Bahgat Korany, profesor in the Department of Political Science and director of the AUC Forum.
Refreshments will be served.
