Research Areas

The majority of our research projects are situated within a larger ‘umbrella’ project called “The Middle East in the Contemporary World” or MECW. This project, funded by the Swedish Research Council, is the foundation for research efforts organized by the center with the aim of coordinating, redirecting, and expanding research at Lund University. Read more about MECW and the four research themes here.

In addition to MECW, CMES hosts several multi-disciplinary research projects with external funding. All research projects are listed to the left. 

If you would like to have more information about research at CMES, please contact Communications Officer Anna Hellgren.
