Arab News - - BUSINESS - ARAB NEWS

JED­DAH: An In­ter­na­tional Di­a­logue Fo­rum on “The Im­pact of So­cial Se­cu­rity and Eco­nomic De­vel­op­ment Poli­cies in Pre­vent­ing Ter­ror­ism” will be held in Kuala Lumpur on Wed­nes­day.

The event spon­sored by the So­cial Se­cu­rity Re­search Cen­ter (SSRC) of Uni­ver­sity Malaya will be held in co­op­er­a­tion with the Riyadh-based Saudi Re­search and Mar­ket­ing Group (SRMG).

The sci­en­tific su­per­vi­sion of the fo­rum will be con­ducted by EuroMENA, a spe­cial­ized re­search cen­ter based in Lon­don.

The main ob­jec­tive of the di­a­logue is to bring to­gether schol- ars and ex­perts from rel­e­vant dis­ci­plinary back­grounds to con­duct an open dis­cus­sion on the the role of so­cioe­co­nomic de­vel­op­ment poli­cies in pro­mot­ing peace and in the pre­ven­tion of vi­o­lence and ter­ror­ism.

Dis­cus­sions of the fo­rum will be based on so­cial and eco­nomic de­vel­op­ment as a cat­a­lyst to coun­tert­er­ror­ism and pos­si­ble fac­tors con­tribut­ing to ter­ror­ism.

De­lib­er­a­tions will iden­tify the ac­tual rea­sons for ter­ror­ism.

The par­tic­i­pants will also re­view the facts re­lat­ing to ter­ror­ism and its mis­con­cep­tions will be high­lighted .

A new con­cep­tual frame­work will be pre­sented for eco­nomic de­vel­op­ment, so­cial se­cu­rity and coun­ter­ing vi­o­lence and ter­ror­ism. Ex­perts and re­searchers will an­a­lyze the so­cial and eco­nomic losses due to ter­ror­ism in de­vel­op­ing coun­tries.

The event will be at­tended by a large num­ber of ex­perts and in­ter­ested par­ties from both coun­tries, as well as re­searchers and ex­perts from in­ter­na­tional or­ga­ni­za­tions.

The So­cial Se­cu­rity Re­search Cen­ter (SSRC) was es­tab­lished in March 2011 at the Fac­ulty of Eco­nomics and Ad­min­is­tra­tion (FEA), Uni­ver­sity of Malaya to ini­ti­ate and carry out re­search, teach­ing and dis­sem­i­na­tion of ev­i­dence-based knowl­edge in the area of so­cial se­cu­rity, in­clud­ing old age fi­nan­cial pro­tec­tion in or­der to en­hance the un­der­stand­ing of this crit­i­cal topic to pro­mote eco­nomic de­vel­op­ment and so­cial co­he­sion in Malaysia.

SRMG is the largest pub­lish­ing group in the Mid­dle East en­gaged mainly in pro­vid­ing in­for­ma­tion prod­ucts and ser­vices by pub­lish­ing news­pa­pers and mag­a­zines cov­er­ing the Mid­dle East and glob­ally in ad­di­tion to gen­eral trad­ing, ad­ver­tise­ment, pro­mo­tion, as well as print­ing, pro­duc­tion and dis­tri­bu­tion ser­vices.

A set of im­por­tant rec­om­men­da­tions are to be made at the end of the con­clud­ing ses­sion of the fo­rum.
