Webinar to launch the Inclusive Social Security Policy Forum (ISSPF) for the MENA region

The webinar introduces the Inclusive Social Security Policy Forum (ISSPF), which aspires to provide a network and space for civil society organisations across the MENA region to find and contribute to practical resources to enhance their capacity to effectively engage in national debates on social security and social protection. ISSPF aims to de-mystify complex concepts in social protection and social security by improving understanding of the qualitative differences between different types of social protection programmes and their implications for achieving broader national economic and social development goals. ISSPF is an initiative funded by the Ford Foundation focused on building knowledge and capacity on inclusive social security in the MENA region. The webinar will feature keynote remarks by Dr. Shahra Razavi, Director, ILO Social Protection Department, as well as interventions by Dr. Stephen Kidd, Principal Social Policy Specialist at Development Pathways, Dr. Rana Jawad, Associate Professor in Social Policy at Bath University, Shea McClanahan, Senior Social Policy Specialist at Development Pathways, Samar Muhareb, CEO of the Arab Renaissance for Democracy and Development in Jordan, and Chafik Ben Rouine, Co-Founder and President of the Tunisian Observatory of Economy.
