CMES Seminar Series

CMES has two sets of seminar series.

CMES Public Seminar

CMES Public Seminar is organised 2-3 times per semester and focuses on current “hot” topics in the Middle East. National and international experts are invited to share their insights and analyses on various subjects relevant to the region.

CMES Research Seminar

CMES Research Seminar is the main collective seminar at the Centre. LU researchers and invited national and international leading scholars present ongoing research and analyses of a broad range of exciting topics of relevance for the Middle East.

Across the semester, you are warmly invited to attend both Seminar Series. Until further notice, all meetings are held on Zoom. We hope to return to hybrid and physical seminars once the infection rate of COVID-19 has decreased.
