  On September 19, 2013,  our Arab human security network took part in the 9th Nordic Society conference for Middle Eastern Studies at Lund university in Sweden. In my presentation I updated the participants on the impacts of the brutal war in Syria on the civilians and innocent people including the impacts of explosive and indiscriminate weapons. I detailed on the human and health aspects and impacts on children and women as well as the urgent need for humanitarian assistance.

 Case studies about the role of relief and humanitarian civil society organizations were presented, highlighting the role of volunteers.

  I also made use of the opportunity to meet many of the participants from the Arab countries and brief them on our human security network and the world peace day including the theme chosen for this year “Education for Peace”.
