Rihab Elhaj and Nabeel Ali
Rihab Elhaj from Libya, and Nabeel Ali from Jordan, are both involved in accompanying human rights and democracy promotion initiatives in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region (more info available here).
They took part in the 2012 edition of the MENA Fellowship Programme, carried out by the United Nations Alliance of Civilizations and supported by Vivendi. Intercultural dialogue is key to this programme, whose goal is to build ties between young professionals from the Middle East, the Maghreb, Europe and the Americas (click here for more info about the Fellowship programme). In autumn 2012, in the framework of the Programme, Vivendi hosted a delegation of young leaders from the MENA region for the third time. On that occasion, Rihab and Nabeel shared with us their experiences conducted in the field.
