Nassira Ghozlane,General Secretary of the Algerian Syndicat Autonome National des Personnels del’Administration (SNAPAP)

 Kamal Abou Aita,President of Egyptian Federation of Independent Trade Unions

 Arab trade union leaders will discuss the changes unfolding across the Middle East and North Africa. What role have workers played in protests across the region? What is the condition of unions in the Egypt and Tunisia after the revolutions in these countries? What role has labor played in the uprising in Bahrain? And how are unions in Algeria, seemingly untouched by the “Arab Spring,” working to improve the lives of working men and women? The rights of workers and workers’ organizations lie at the heart of key issues for the region’s development, including democratic governance, job creation, and economic and social justice. 

Discussion will be moderated by Dr. Samer Shehata.

Panel will be followed by a light reception.
