Sweet Talks


In Sweet Talks, MENA Student Association brings together members of its community to discuss various topics. These topics may range from historical topics to personal experiences to difficulties that members of our community may experience. Through this series, we aim to provide a platform for our community in a safe, non-sectarian and progressive space for the wider MENA diaspora.

Mapping Madaniya

In collaboration with Laila al-Zwaini, this action project aims at mapping the diverse (political, legal, religious, cultural, and artistic) notions, usages, and drivers of the concept of madaniya, so as to amplify the voices of the Arab youth and intellectuals who - to this day - show us possible ways out of the cycle of violence and forced migration. The project also aims at filling the knowledge gap that exists in most political and security analyses on the MENA region with locally produced knowledge in all forms. The three countries that this project will cover are Iraq, Yemen, and Jordan.
