In the forum, Bakkar talked about national disputes and ways of addressing them inside the same country citing many examples from our situation in the Arab world. The most prominent was the current scene in Syria. He distinguished between the different kinds of disputes of the minorities and their disputes among each other, the ethnic, racial or religious. He also talked about the disputes that occur between the minority and the majority. In addition, he pointed out many ways of addressing, solving and avoiding these disputes.
At the end of the forum, the audience were given the floor to ask questions about the unfortunate current situation each one is having in his own country.
