In 2016, the Robert Schuman Centre for Advanced Studies (RSCAS) at the European University Institute (EUI) established the MIDDLE EAST DIRECTIONS Programme. The Programme is a continuation of the Mediterranean Programme, which positioned the EUI at the forefront of the Euro-Mediterranean research dialogue between 1999 and 2013. It has the ambition to become an international reference point for research on the Middle East and North Africa Region, studying socio-political, economic and religious trends and transformations.The programme produces academic outputs such as working papers and e-books. To read the most recent research analysis visit the Publications section.
It also liaises with policy makers with a wide range of policy briefs, policy report and analysis.
It also proposes interviews to key actors, activists and researchers on the main axes of research of the project. Visit the Middle East Directions Youtube Channel.
