It gives – on a country by county basis – an overview of the major political issues and developments in the region since the end of the First World War and addresses key themes in the study of contemporary Middle East politics, including: the role of the military, social and economic development, political Islam, and the recent uprisings (the ‘Arab Spring’).
Its aim is to develop the students’ understanding of the major trends in the Middle East politics and their skills of political analysis through critical reading, lectures, presentations and informed discussion.
The course is normally offered in conjunction with Beginners Arabic (Level 1 or 2).”
