Dersin İçeriği

The seminar attempts to provide an in-depth theoretical and empirical knowledge to the politics and IR of the Middle East since the World War II. The course will focus on the study of central topics and themes that have been shaping the modern Middle East, including State formation and colonial rule; political economy and development; democratization and political Islam; foreign policy and great power interests. Moreover, the seminar will shed light upon recent revolutionary upheavals (Arab Spring), and future prospects of liberalization and democratization, and power constellations in the region (regional order).
The main goal of this course, accordingly, is to present a comprehensive and current outlook of the entire region as a distinctive political region, despite the many critical variances within the region. Case studies of individual countries will be introduced in each week.
