The workshop will bring together a select group of scholars and practitioners from the Middle East and from NYU who are concerned with widening the space for leadership study and action. Leadership scholars in the region have stressed the importance of looking at leadership from within, rather than transposing ‘Western’ models that seldom fit Middle Eastern contexts. A dialogue between US-based and regional interlocutors will explore cases of leadership which transcends sectors, transforms ordinary citizens into active agents of change, and opens up new public spaces for deliberation and engagement. The workshop will focus on determining practical implications for the study of leadership, higher education curriculum and training and development programs.
