CMES affiliated Madeleine Kassab participated in a Women & Children conference and gave a talk discussing the issues of the Arab entrepreneur woman.

Under the patronage of Prof. Dr. Amr Ezzat Salama, Secretary-General of the Association of Arab Universities, Swedish Iraqi Studies Network, and the Knowledge Enrichment Academy held in February 2021, the first international conference "The challenges facing the woman and the children in the modern society" led by Professor Sameer Algburi, Director of SISNET.

Madeleine Kassab´s talk was about the Media Framing of the Arab Entrepreneur Woman. 

Her study aims at analyzing the media frames adopted by a group of websites in discussing the issues of the Arab entrepreneur woman between 2019 and 2020. How does media present the term “entrepreneurship”? What are the characteristics of the entrepreneur woman according to the senders? What are the highlighted challenges and successes? Did media iconify particular persons or was the discourse general? Was the trend of the content positive or negative towards the woman?

Participated in the opening session: the Secretary-General and the Director of the Swedish Iraqi Studies Network and the presidents of the universities of Al-Kitab, Mosul, Qadisiyah, Thi- Qar,  Al-Anbar and Jadara University, Jordan, the cultural advisor in Western Europe at the Iraqi embassy, the head of the International Friendship Organization in Sweden, Director of the Women’s Center at the University of Baghdad, Director of the Quality of Life Center in Lebanon, Dr. Nabil Al-Obaidi, Chairman of the Scientific Committee, and Dr. Israa Alaa Al-Deen Noori, Chairman of the Preparatory Committee at the conference.
151 papers were presented in 11 sessions of the conference. Accepted papers will be published in four journals in the universities of Mosul, Qadisiyah, Thi - Qar, and Al-Anbar.
