How do researchers carry out research on the politics of the Middle East and North Africa (MENA)? This seminar provides an introduction to some of the major theories and research methods employed to understand political power in the MENA region. Through lectures, discussion seminars and practical exercises, students will learn how to plan and design a research project, how to carry it out, and how to present their findings for academic and non-academic audiences. In the process, we will discuss some of the major theoretical approaches to politics in general and Middle East politics in particular.
