The topic “generational conflict” is the focus of this first edition of “Perspectives”. This conflict between young and old, which was particularly pronounced during the Arab Spring, is ongoing and erupts time and again. But how does it differ from one Arabic country to the other, or what distinguishes it in the Arabic diaspora in Germany? And what visions of the future do the young generations hold?
Egypt, Algeria, Lebanon… six young women and men from six different countries have put their individual views and experience with the generational conflict into words for this dossier. Besides multimedia articles, you are in for a treat of the humorous kind with the short graphic novel “20 Questions”, exclusively prepared for “Perspectives” by Haitham and Mohamed Raafat El-Seht of Twins Cartoon
“Perspectives” is the new online multimedia magazine of the Goethe-Institutes in the Region North Africa and Middle East. In cooperation with Deutsche Welle’s “Qantara.de – Dialogue with the Islamic World”, “Perspectives” will be published quarterly in Arabic, German, English and French, each time with a focus on a compelling topic. Intercultural dialogue and the exploration of new perspectives on current social challenges and questions are at the heart of this magazine.
