MESF biennial conference: Foreign State Influence in the Middle East & South Asia


The Middle East Studies Forum holds conferences on the politics and international relations of the Middle East every two years. We were in the early stages of planning this year’s conference as the COVID-19 pandemic took hold across the world. We look forward to confirming dates once the crisis passes. Please find the call for papers here, and sign up to our mailing list for the formal conference announcement! Stay safe!
