  • The Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region is a critically important region due to its geographical and strategic uniqueness along with its natural resources (oil and gas) and young population. Situated between three continents (Africa, Asia and Europe) and hence appropriating the most important trade routes connecting the East to the West, the region since the dawn of human civilization has been the center stage for regional and international competition and has suffered consequently from intensive foreign interference in its own affairs.

    The youth diplomacy forum and ORSAM would like to jointly organize one-month online certificate program. This program will cover MENA region’s economy, political system, bilateral ties, history etc. Experts from Turkey and Pakistan will highlight and discuss with participants about the MENA both from Turkish and Pakistani perspective. There will be four sessions in which, history, economy, political system and Pakistan-Turkey relations with MENA will be covered.

    E-Certificates will be provided to the participants whom attended at least 80% of all lectures and complete the required assignments. Participants who will write good articles will be published on the website of the youth diplomacy forum.

    Graphics and the Zoom platform is going to be provided by ORSAM and certificates from YDF.
