Welcome to LSE’s Middle East Centre Blog. This blog seeks to make available analysis of the Middle East and North Africa in an immediately accessible and highly relevant way for a wide readership, drawing primarily on the community of academics and researchers at LSE, but also including outside contributors. We are especially interested in contributions which bring original, primary source material to light.
The LSE Middle East Centre builds on LSE’s long engagement with the Middle East and North Africa and provides a central hub for the wide range of research on the region carried out at LSE.
The Middle East Centre works to enhance understanding and develop rigorous research on the societies, economies, politics and international relations of the region. The Centre promotes both specialised knowledge and public understanding of this crucial area and has outstanding strengths in interdisciplinary research and in regional expertise. As one of the world’s leading social science institutions, LSE comprises departments covering all branches of the social sciences. The Middle East Centre harnesses this expertise to promote innovative multidisciplinary research and understanding of the region.
