Middle East and North Africa Program

Generating new social science perspectives on the Middle East and North Africa
The SSRC's Middle East and North Africa (MENA) Program seeks to develop new perspectives of the Middle East and North Africa that reflect the shifting geographies of the 21st century, including re-examining the notion of the region itself. The program also works to initiate regional social science forums and to create collaborative networks among scholars working in and on the region, on topics such as public spheres, new media, higher education, and the politics of culture.
