PITAPOLICY represents the Politics, Interests, Technology, and Analysis of the Middle East & North African region. Breaking bread, hence sharing a meal with anyone, symbolizes the conscious and informal way of engaging in respectful conversation. Moreover, if one can “break bread” with another, they have taken the first step towards engagement, and building more concretely upon that diplomacy. Pita bread operates as the common denominator that links the various cultures in that region–from Morocco to Pakistan–in reflecting upon dynamics and anticipating trends in the region. PITA policy invites organizations, analysts, academics, activists, and students who believe in breaking bread, or deconstructing the evidence on the table, to determine what still must be learned and inform more thoughtful discussion.
