In the continuity of the activities organised in the previous years by the Muslim World Working Group, the Middle East Directions Programme Working Group aims to provide a space for lectures, workshops, and discussion of social sciences issues related to the Arab and Muslim World in all its diversity. This means addressing topics as diverse as politics, economy, demography, contemporaneous history, society, culture and religion in the Middle East and North Africa, as well as Muslim communities and diasporas throughout the world.
The group promotes an interdisciplinary approach and welcomes any (EUI and non-EUI affiliated) researcher whose work relates to the MENA region and/or Islam across departments and disciplines. We particularly encourage doctoral students and fellows to present their published and unpublished work and join us for the discussion. The working group coordinates is a joint initiative between the SPS department and the RSCAS.
