Dividing Lines: Reimagining Social Division in ‘Divided Societies’

This SEPAD project and the Foreign Policy Centre (FPC) event and publication launch, Dividing Lines: Reimagining Social Division in ‘Divided Societies’, will bring together a range of experts to examine the similarities and differences across ‘divided societies’, using the concept of sectarianism to better understand efforts to address division across the world. It will explore the concept of sectarianism in peacebuilding and the resulting effects that have emerged from this process in Lebanon, Syria, Kuwait and Yemen, whilst also reflecting on divisions in other societies that are home to enduring social, political and religious divisions across the world. Please register below if you would like to attend this event in London.
