IPI Mena Director Nejib Friji called for further commitment to the multilateral system to make it fit for purpose and help reinforce regional cooperation, sustainable development and peace in the Middle East and North Africa.

Addressing private sector representatives, businesspersons and members of the Manama and Salmaniya Rotary Clubs as a guest speaker on ‘Regional Integration and Peace in the Mena Region’, he stressed the importance IPI puts on reinforcing the multilateral system.

Friji referred to the Independent Commission on Multilateralism Report (ICM), an international, multi-stakeholder process organized by IPI and chaired by former Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd, and its role in making the UN more ‘fit for purpose’.

He underlined key IPI initiatives that focus on managing risk and building resilient societies through IPI’s mandate of preventive diplomacy and commitment to multilateralism, and pointed specifically to IPI’s key Regional Integration project for this part of the world.
Highlighting the European Union’s formation following the tragic World Wars as a prime example of regional cooperation, he stressed the need for a homegrown initiative in the Mena region.
“There is a pressing need to address challenges collectively and to create an environment conducive to solving the crises we see today,” he stated.   
He emphasised the importance of IPI’s Water Diplomacy initiative as a fundamental area of focus within Regional Integration, as well as among others, IPI’s Culture of Peace, Interfaith Dialogue and MIKTA initiatives.
Concluding the interactive session, Friji thanked the Rotarians for their longstanding support to peace and welcomed partnerships between IPI and the Rotary Club, featuring think tanking towards do tanking in support to the multilateral system and investing in regional cooperation to build resilient, stable and sound societies.
