4 Established in 1964, the Robert Bosch Stiftung GmbH is one of the major German foundations associated with a private company. It represents the philanthropic and social endeavors of Robert Bosch ( ) and fulfills his legacy in a contemporary manner. The Robert Bosch Stiftung works predominantly in the fields of International Relations, Health, and Education. The EU-Middle East Forum, as well as its predecessors, the International Forum on Strategic Thinking (IFST) and the Forum European Foreign and Security Policy, have been realized in close cooperation between DGAP and Robert Bosch Stiftung. The Institute for Foreign Cultural Relations (Institut für Auslandsbeziehungen, ifa) is an organization operating worldwide to promote intercultural exchange and dialogue between civil societies. With funds from the German Federal Foreign Office, ifa supports with its zivik Funding Programme projects of German, international, and/or local non-governmental organizations to support the transformation of the affected Arab countries from autocratic models to functioning democratic systems reigned by the rule of law and a constructive conflict culture. The Gerda Henkel Foundation was established by Lisa Maskell in June 1976 in memory of her mother Gerda Henkel as a private, non-profit, grant-making institution dedicated to promoting research in the humanities. The Foundation has its headquarters in Düsseldorf and is active in Germany and abroad. In 2008, the Foundation included initiatives on conflict prevention in the program of fields it supports in order for the first time to cover scholarly projects that are not exclusively historical in thrust. Since 2009, Islam, the modern nation state and transnational movements has been introduced as a focal point of supporting activities for the same reason.

9 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 indepth 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 35. 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 decision-makers. The web page is DGAP s thematic web-portal. It provides wellgrounded background information and analyses about the research institute s current work. It thereby contributes to the professional and public debates about international politics. 3

10 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. EUMEF is carried out in cooperation with its long-standing partner the Robert Bosch Stiftung, the German Federal Foreign Office, and the Institute for Foreign Cultural Relations (ifa). The program s predecessors, the International Forum on Strategic Thinking (IFST) and the Forum European Foreign and Security Policy, were also realized in close cooperation with the Robert Bosch Stiftung. 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 threepronged 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 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 4

11 transformations in Egypt and Tunisia, open inter-cultural 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. 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 scheduled 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.

14 I. General Outline The 17 th New Faces Conference Concept Note Over the past year, Islamist movements have increasingly managed to translate their popular standing into sweeping election successes. With the demise of the authoritarian rulers in Egypt and Tunisia and the current attempted transition from an authoritarian to a democratic system, political forces in general including Islamists gained more freedom allowing them to widen their scope of operations and activities, and to institutionalize themselves by forming political parties to become official actors in the two countries political landscape. With their extremely successful performance in the recent elections, Islamists have clearly moved to the focal point of attention and without doubt they are forces that will have a great influence on politics and society in Egypt and Tunisia in the short and long-run. This reality necessitates scrutinizing and understanding their beliefs, ultimate goals, program/agenda and actions. It is particularly important and interesting to analyze to what extent there are changes in their ideological stands and concretization of standpoints and principles as a result of the new pluralistic structures and of moving from the opposition to the force in power holding the responsibility to govern. Islamists have been subject to evolution over the past decades but this transformation has always occurred under authoritarian or semi-authoritarian systems. Hence, the current unprecedented opening lends their evolutionary path new dynamics. It has to be noted here, though, that certainty about the direction of Islamist movements and about their genuine espousal of liberal values and embracement of democratic principles can only be achieved the longer they are active in parliament and government and are engaged in policy-making. Hence findings of the conference can only be considered a snapshot of the current situation, with a very high probability of new changes as a result of the state of flux both countries are witnessing and which is expected to continue for some time. The three-day conference aims to investigate Islamist movements in Egypt and Tunisia in an interdisciplinary setting, analyze how pluralism and political opening are affecting and changing them, and pinpoint (if possible) concrete policy measures and priorities they are offering their respective citizens. Implications of these developments for the democratic process and for stability in the two countries will equally be addressed. 8

15 II. Subjects The conference will examine Islamist forces in Egypt and Tunisia by looking at several domains. The focus will be on mainstream Islamist organizations (movements and parties) that have renounced violence and are pursuing their goals by peacefully engaging in political life. The first domain that will be addressed is the one related to 1) changes in their internal dynamics, structure, and power distribution. Questions that pose themselves here are for example: what is the influence and impact of contest, fragmentation, and intergenerational conflict over the proper course to be taken? What are implications of these differences on the strength and cohesion of the movement and party respectively? How does the thinking of younger members differ from the old guard? Are internal structures of the newly formed parties democratic and in line with their alleged support for democracy, or are religious, authoritarian, paternalistic structures prevailing particularly sidelining youth and women? Is there an attempt for a clearer separation between the political and religious wing of Islamist movements? Which conclusion can be drawn here concerning their sincerity of espousal of democratic principles in general? In the context of agenda examination, several other key sensitive issues deserve special attention. Their viewpoints on 2) the nature of the state and civil and political rights need to be thoroughly analyzed. Their constitutional priorities such as the role of Islamic law (sharia) need to be addressed as well as their stand regarding internal governance such as power distribution between the executive and the legislative and the decision-making process of legislation. For example, what do they think about pluralism and tolerance of other opposing views, especially in light of the religious framework (the marji iya) that many pledge needs to be integrated in any decision-making? There is also major concern on the part of liberal non-islamists that once in power, Islamists will severely curb civil and political rights of women, particularly those pertaining to the personal status law, and that the willingness of Islamists to make concessions in this domain will decrease. Doubts about equal citizenship and religious freedom including religious minorities like the Copts in Egypt are as strong and hence require closer examination. The same holds true for other individual rights such as the freedoms of speech and artistic expression. One of the toughest challenges facing any force in power in Egypt or Tunisia is alleviating the socio-economic hardship of the majority of the population, and success or failure in this area will certainly determine the political fate of the new rulers. Hence, what do the new actors have to offer in the domain of 3) social and economic policies? How do they intend to fight corruption, eradicate poverty, create jobs, and offer decent social services? Is their economic and social agenda conducive to realizing social justice, a major demand of the uprisings in both countries? Is an economic system along purely Islamic lines a wish of the past and do they seek a rather mixed system with options and choices? Who do they turn to for assistance, the 9

16 West or the Gulf countries and other Muslim majority countries like Indonesia, Malaysia, and Turkey? The last point is related to one of their blurriest, most unpredictable agenda parts, namely the one on their 4) foreign policy orientation. What kind of foreign policy will they pursue? How will they deal with international agreements and conventions? Who will be their allies and what kind of policy will they adopt towards the Israelis and the Palestinians? Which implications does their foreign policy orientation have on domestic and regional politics? Finally, the conference will 5) draw on experiences of other Islamist forces in the region and relevant findings as well as address 6) the EU s politics and policies towards these developments and actors and whether there is need for an alteration or revision of these very ones or a simple recognition that an emancipation on the side of some North African countries is occurring that will translate into a redefinition of relations and power dynamics, which the EU can hardly influence. 10
