Education, Business and Society: Contemporary Middle Eastern Issues provides a forum for researchers and practitioners to discuss, analyse and shape the social, economic and political terrain of the Middle East. Multidisciplinary in scope, the journal will provide theory-based research, and both quantitative and qualitative empirical studies on contemporary issues and debates. The journal will also combine a region-specific orientation with a comparative approach.
Education, Business and Society: Contemporary Middle Eastern Issues publishes:
The journal views education, business and society as overlapping and interlocking constructs that provide coverage of most of the contemporary developments in the Middle East. Accordingly, the following list of potential coverage topics represents a somewhat artificial division of subject matter among the three areas. Nonetheless, it is provided as an aid for potential contributors and readers of the journal.
Education, Business and Society: Contemporary Middle Eastern Issues' coverage includes but is not limited to:
Please note that all of the topics listed above must make specific or comparative reference to the Middle East.
The Middle East is critical to any understanding of the contemporary world. Home of much of the world's oil reserves, and hence central to global energy issues, as well as unwitting host to the conflicts that have in many ways become the litmus test of east-west relations, including the Israeli-Palestinian struggle and more recently the Iraq war, the region assumes a significance that far outweighs its geographical size or population. The Middle East is also a region that has gone through - and continues to experience - startling change, progress and development in many sectors, wrought by industrialization, urbanization and modernization. In coming decades, the impact of these changes, the continuation or resolution of the above regional conflicts, along with the challenges of implementing human development policies and political revitalization, all comprise the complex array of factors that will be key to the region's long-term development and hence to world economic and political security.
As yet, the Middle East and its many complexities have been under-represented in serious academic debate. Academic interest in the area is, however, growing exponentially, and there is a need for a publication which can capture and harvest knowledge, expertise and debate about the region. Education, Business and Society: Contemporary Middle Eastern Issues seeks to fill this void.
Academics, practitioners and students interested in contributing to knowledge of, or gaining insight into, topical issues in Middle Eastern education or business specifically and Middle Eastern society in general.
