While the corona-virus pandemic led us to postpone our in-person conference to 2021, Western Asian Development Institute decided to shift this year’s event to an online format. We felt it was important to provide our participants a platform to gather during an otherwise isolating time, both professionally and personally. As a result of this change, we were also able to welcome many young scholars from different countries.
