As part of a key policy-making round table, Asfar’s CEO, Sheniz Tan, visited the House of Lords’ International Relations Committee to promote young peoples’ views on the future of the UK’s Foreign policy towards the Middle East.
Our CEO was particularly asked to provide guidance on Turkey, how young Turkish people engage in politics, how young Women and Girls engage with their civic society, as well as wider issues they may face. With particular focus on the methods young people in the Middle East participate in their societies, follow the news, and social media tools were a key discussion point.
Furthermore, members of the round table were asked to advise what the UK’s Foreign Policy towards the Middle East should look like in the future i.e. should it be political; military-based; or something else.
Due to the Chatham House rules, which prevailed over the round table, Asfar is currently unable to provide any further details, however, watch this space for information or visit the International Relations Committee website here.
