This year’s Hammamet conference focused “on building peaceful and inclusive societies. A challenge that requires leaders from all walks of life to inspire and act in a way that fosters long-term stability and prosperity,” according to the conference's website.

The first documentary “The Hidden Enemy”, released in September 2017, highlighted the deadly situation in some residential neighborhoods of Benghazi due to the widespread of landmines and explosive remnants of war, and the military demining unit's lack of resources and mine-clearing equipment.
