Event details

A one day interdisciplinary conference to explore the implications of change and transformation in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) and the region's relationship with the major actors in Asia (meaning state and non-state actors).

This conference invites PhD candidates, early-career researchers and specialists to contribute to discussions on continuities and transformations in MENA-Asia relations and how they contribute to a better understanding of the dynamics and potential for transformation at the bi-lateral, regional and international levels.

There will be round-table opportunities headed by established academics where researchers can discuss the development of their journal articles and research techniques, gaining valuable advice and feedback.

The conference also challenges the dominant epistemology regarding research, and existing conferences, which analyses these regions from the dominant subject positions and interests of western policy makers. This conference investigates and develops understandings of the implications of change and transformation in the MENA and how they affect, or are reflecting in, the regions relations with state and non-state actors in Asia. In this respect the topic is not region specific in the political sense of the term. Nor is the central interest concerned with how dominant western authors and schools can understand Asia-MENA interactions in relation to existing Western policies but rather in relation to those actors in Asia and the MENA themselves.
