7 German Council on Foreign Relations (DGAP) The German Council on Foreign Relations (DGAP) is Germany s network for foreign policy. As an independent, non-partisan, and nonprofit membership organization, think tank, and publisher DGAP has been promoting public debate on foreign policy in Germany for over 50 years. More than members among them renowned representatives from politics, business, academia, and the media as well as more than 70 companies and foundations support the work of DGAP. DGAP s goals are to promote and contribute to foreign policy debates in Germany, to advise decision makers from politics, business, and civil society, and to inform the public on foreign policy questions and issues. DGAP comprises the think tank, the journal IP, the library and documentation center, the platform Young DGAP, and the web portal DGAP s think tank works at the junction between politics, the economy, and academia. Its work is interdisciplinary, policy-oriented and covers different areas of German foreign policy, which is dynamic due to a globalized and rapidly changing world. The work encompasses research and publications, high-profile conferences and meetings as well as programs for the advancement of Young Professionals. The journal Internationale Politik (IP) appears in German as a bimonthly print magazine and in English as an online magazine on German and European foreign policy. IP Journal offers German perspectives on important foreign affairs issues as well as in-depth analyses on central questions of German and European foreign policy by renowned authors and experts in and outside of Germany. The DGAP Library and Documentation Center (BiDok) is one of the oldest and most significant specialized libraries in Germany that is open to the public. It holds substantial collections on German foreign and security policy. The Young DGAP is a new initiative for members of DGAP under the age of 40. The Young DGAP aims at encouraging more young people to take an active interest in foreign and security policy through innovative events such as controversial debates and discussions with renowned decisionmakers. The web page is DGAP s thematic web-portal. It provides well-grounded background information and analyses about the research institute s current work. It thereby contributes to the professional and public debates about international politics. 4

8 EU-Middle East Forum (EUMEF) The EU Middle East Forum (EUMEF) is one of the core programs for the advancement of young academics and professionals at DGAP. The forum conceptualizes and organizes dialogue and learning conferences, providing a platform for young experts from European and Middle Eastern states to exchange ideas, to debate, to jointly develop solutions to security and developmental challenges, to promote a better understanding and trust between different participants, and to build up a network of high caliber future actors and decision makers. The underlying idea is that security and developmental challenges cannot be tackled by single nation states, but require international dialogue and cooperation. 1. Topics EUMEF mainly works on soft security issues such as democratization, human rights, climate change, and migration. In 2012, EUMEF focuses on chances and challenges associated with the current transformation processes in Egypt and Tunisia, and EU and German politics towards these developments. 2. Participants Participants of EUMEF s different conference formats come from the North-African countries Egypt, Tunisia, and Morocco, from Turkey, and from Germany, France, Italy, Greece, Spain, and the United Kingdom. EUMEF targets students and young professionals from academia, politics, civil society, the media, and the corporate sector. Participants are recommended by a network of experts available to the forum. 3. Conference Formats EUMEF organizes three consecutive but different conference formats. The three-pronged approach enables EUMEF to bring together future leaders at different stages of their career and to realize a sustainable network. International Summer School (ISS) For two weeks in summer in Berlin, the ISS gathers 30 highly qualified students at the end of their studies or recent graduates (with 1 2 years of work experience). The focus lies on studies related to the fields of Political Science, Economics, Law, and Media and Communication Science. Besides lectures and speeches by international renowned experts, discussions, working groups, and training workshops on different aspects and angles of the transformations in Egypt and Tunisia, open intercultural dialogue and social activities are part of the program. New Faces Conference (NFC) The NFC brings together 20 young professionals from academia, politics, civil society, the media, and the corporate sector. EUMEF organizes two to three NFCs per year, mainly in cooperation with different partner institutions in Turkey, Egypt, Morocco or Tunisia. In 2012, EUMEF is cooperating with the American University in Cairo and the Freie Universität Berlin Cairo Office. Each NFC focuses on and deepens a specific aspect of the summer school s main subject. The NFC provides a forum to intensively discuss these issues with like-minded peers and senior experts. At the same time the conference enables participants to expand their network and to initiate joint projects. 5

9 Alumni Conference Biennially EUMEF invites all former ISS and NFC participants to reconvene in Berlin for three days. The Alumni Conference allows for a strengthening of the network and an exchange among the alumni. Subjects addressed are derived from up-to-date security challenges and topics of the former conferences and summer schools. Participants also get the chance to present initiatives and projects and to explore cooperation channels with other alumni. The next Alumni Conference is planned for November Objectives - Reflection and analysis of security challenges and the sensitization for effective solutions and policies on a national and EU level - Exchange of know-how and experiences - Promotion of an intercultural dialogue to increase understanding and trust between young potential policy makers from Arab countries, the EU, and Turkey - Promotion of a pluralistic, tolerant, and respectful debating environment - Establishing a network of high calibre future actors from North Africa, the EU, and Turkey 5.

12 I. General Outline The 16 th New Faces Conference Concept Note In Egypt s uprising, political and economic demands were intertwined and inseparable. At the core of the revolution in Egypt lay/lie demands for an end to political repression and stagnation as well as calls for social justice and an end to massive poverty, unemployment, the lack of decent education, health and social security schemes, corruption, and nepotism; just to name a few of the country s serious economic and social woes. The long-term social frustration and disillusionment resulting from these economic, social, and political deficiencies led to a sense of marginalization, exclusion, and humiliation at the individual and collective level that removed the wall of fear characteristic for citizens living in authoritarian settings and led to the uprising in January Any talk of political reform needs therefore to proceed in tandem with economic reforms and economics are at least as important and as decisive a factor that will heavily determine the course of the country in the transitional phase and beyond. If the disadvantaged population does not sense in the short- and long-run an amelioration of its social and economic conditions, an escalation and spread of conflicts and a waning of credibility and popularity of the democratization process as well as grave disappointment are inevitable, with serious repercussions for the country s development and hence, implications for security and stability nationally and in the region. Therefore, economic policies and strategies need thorough analysis, and adequate solutions and programs need to be developed nationally but also - if asked by the Egyptian side - by external actors such as the EU in order to satisfy the legitimate demands of Egypt s marginalized segments of society. There is also an urgency to scrutinize and question former economic and social policies and models that failed to deliver and to set the way forward. Besides, transformations in Egypt are happening against the backdrop of a decrease of trust in the market economy as a result of the financial and economic crisis, a model long perceived as the most effective in terms of economic management. These realities render the process of economic transition certainly more contentious. The endeavor of addressing Egypt s socio-economic malaise needs to be approached from an interdisciplinary perspective, given the fact that political and social contexts within which economic activities are taking place effect and condition economics and vice versa. Often politics and economics are conceived as separate spheres and a lesson long drawn but often discarded is that purely technical economic approaches that disregard the political and social context are incomprehensive and flawed. The aim of the conference is an investigation of selected economic and social models and policies in an interdisciplinary setting and the development of solutions and policy recommendations. II. Thematic Clusters The three day conference aims to address a number of economic and social aspects of the transitional phase in Egypt along four thematic clusters, bearing in mind that these four are overlapping, inseparable, and mutually dependent. The conference does not attempt to comprehensively examine Egypt s social and economic problems but rather focuses on major relevant thematic blocs: the economic model and form of the Egyptian state, governance and policy making, labor and human development, and the role of external actors and experiences from other countries. 9

13 1. Egypt s Economic Model Observers and economic experts differ in their views concerning the economic model Egypt should now adopt. There are proponents of inter alia opening the market for more trade, financial liberalization, increasing the role and space of the private sector, and cutting subsidies and decreasing the economic role and expenditures of the state. They blame crony capitalism and an incomprehensive and faulty implementation of neo-liberal policies and not the essence of the model as such for failing to improve social and economic conditions of the majority of the population. Others demand more state intervention. They argue that privatization and excessive reliance on the market contributed to a rise in unemployment, poverty, and inequality between a rich minority and the deprived majority and that rejecting neo-liberal policies are part and parcel of the people s economic demands. Hence, the question that has to be addressed is: What is the appropriate model for Egypt or which elements of the different models best serve the interest of Egyptian society and should be reflected in the constitution and laws? While examining different models, it is imperative to use a philosophical prism as well, addressing the underlying social principles and values of economic models. Only if values such as sympathy, empathy, and the willingness to reverse property and wealth conditions and to redistribute income and resources are reinvigorated, nurtured and internalized, the economic and political transition is to bear fruit. 2. Governance and Policy-making There is agreement that one of the major impediments to Egypt s comprehensive economic and social development is deficiencies in the country s governance and how policies come into being. As stated before, economics is directly affected by the nature of the political setting it occurs in and inclusion is considered an anchor for good governance and sound economic development. Similar to conditions under which the social contracts came into being, in the past economic reform was not effectively coordinated with a wider scope of stakeholder participation and hence ownership. Debates on economic policies were exclusive to the political elite, actors loyal to the regime, and certain powerful, politically well-connected business circles. The question that arises here is hence about the nexus between the changing nature of Egypt s political system, policymaking processes, and development outcomes. Are there currently novel and efficient mechanisms through which a discussion on reforms and a new social contract respectively are taking place and consensus can be reached? Is there already an effective, inclusive national dialogue under way? What is the role of civil society organizations such as labor unions, NGOs, the media, and political parties? Are they organized and technically versed enough in order to have an impact on the economic reform agenda in a more open political system? More general, how can a democratization of economics be achieved, entailing more inclusion and participation in economic affairs, leading to public support for policies and hence legitimacy, more effective checks and balances mechanisms, and consequently more effective and sustainable policies? 3. Human Capital and Development Youth unemployment and a crumbling educational system are among the gross challenges to be overcome in the short and long run in Egypt, again with a clear interweavement of the two areas. Persistence of this situation bears serious potential for further conflict, destabilization, and increasing radicalization. This thematic bloc will deal with a selection of necessary measures and policies to decrease youth unemployment and enhance Egypt s human capital. Which short-term and long-term policies need to be implemented? For example, how can business creation be boosted and access to capital be facilitated? What kind of legal and administrative environment is necessary for this end? 10

14 Which measures best combat structural deficiencies of corruption and nepotism? How can economic diversification and private investments into job-creating sectors be achieved? And how can small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs), accounting for the bulk of Egypt s non-agricultural sector, be increasingly promoted? A precondition for the success of these reforms is ensuring that educational curricula and skills taught match the needs of the labor market. Hence, how can elementary, secondary, and tertiary education as well as vocational training be comprehensively addressed and reformed? In the context of a discussion of human and labor development, the issue of gender discrimination has to be placed on top of the agenda, investigating how this economically and socially harmful and counter-productive phenomenon can be combated. 4. Cross-cutting Theme External Actors and Experiences Ever since the uprisings erupted, Western powers have been struggling with an adequate reaction, often plagued with disorientation. Nevertheless, powers such as the EU and the German government have a genuine interest in a successful transition to democracy in Egypt. So how can the EU and Germany contribute meaningfully to the country s economic and social development? Here, a critical review of past efforts and an outlook into the future concerning the role they can and should play should be offered. Equally important is scrutinizing the role of other regional actors such as Turkey or the Gulf countries and implications of their engagement on the domestic Egyptian scene. III. Objectives The key objectives of the conference are to: bridge academic and non-academic discourses by bringing together researchers, policy makers, and other practitioners support the young generation of practitioners, policy-makers, and researchers to discuss their visions and findings with senior experts as well as peers develop effective policy recommendations and solutions for national actors as well as external ones such as the EU establish a network between young professionals and initiate new partnerships and promote mutual understanding by bringing together participants from North Africa, the EU, and Turkey. 11
