Through an urgent need to get closer to contemporary realities in The Middle East – a region and a concept which is politically defined rather than just geographically – I decided to visit Jordan due to its location and for the possibility to meet senior research fellow and team-leader Adel Elsayed Sparr at WANA Institute who works with human security – one of the pillars at the institute. Thank you Jordan for your beauty and Adel for interesting dialogue around several areas.
