Keynote speech of Mrs. Karman at global conference on challenges and changes from Iran to Gulf

The Nobel Peace Prize-winning human rights activist, Tawakkol Karman, today took part in an international conference organized by the Institute of Middle East Studies at King's College London.

During the online conference entitled "Conflict, Climate and Civil Society: Tracing with (IN)Stability, Challenges and Changes from Iran to the Gulf", Mrs. Karman delivered a keynote address.

This year marks a pivotal point for the region as it marks a decade since the Arab Spring uprisings and grapples with climate issues and regional cross-border tensions. Likewise, this year marks the 40th anniversary of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) and ushers in a new era in Iranian politics, wrote the institute in a statement on its website.

The event is aimed at identifying cross-cutting themes and providing insights into today’s conflicts, challenges and changes across the Arabian Gulf region, by focusing discussion on the pathways of existing national and regional tensions and on emerging opportunities that may set the tone for future geo-political, environmental, and socio-economic transformations.
