Description: The Middle East and North Africa plays a key role in international patterns of energy, human rights, migration, development, and security and remains in a state of transition a decade after the Arab uprisings of 2011. This course offers a survey of critical political, social, and economic topics in the Middle East and North Africa region with a particular focus on political economy, international and regional security, and international development. Over the semester, students will gain an understanding of the intersecting drivers of change in the region and the ability to put them into historical and comparative context. The course also will equip students with the skills to analyze cross-cutting conceptual developments and to identify nuance and variation in their public policy applicability across the region.
