The MENARA Booklets are a series of publications which provide insights on the Middle East and North Africa regional order. These Booklets translate scholarly-sounded research into helpful insights for practitioners. In each of the four Booklets you may find a compendium of articles and extracts covering the most pressing issues for your field of expertise.
The MENARA Booklet for Academia provides you state-of-the-art and thoughtful analysis which may enrich your research and teaching on Middle East affairs. This Booklet is designed for teachers and students not devoted to Area Studies of the region but still interested in its reality and how this relates to their fields of expertise. It includes our researchers’ main ideas on topics like the impact of the so-called Arab Spring in the region; ongoing changes for societies and political institutions; peace and conflict dynamics and their effects over economy; and the shifting role of foreign actors. All these, read together, would offer a comprehensive picture of the most critical elements to better understand what it is happening in the region since 2011.
