The EU and the Post-Arab Spring

Special Issue of Middle East Critique based on papers from a joint conference arranged by Prince Al Hussein bin Abdullah II School of International Studies, and Center for Contemporary Middle east Studies – and hosted by the University of Jordan in April 2013. The Special Issue is guest-edited by Peter Seeberg.

Taking its point of departure in the discussions about how to interpret events in the Middle East in a post-‘Arab Spring’ scenario, the collection of articles in this Special Issue of Middle East Critique analyses theoretical perspectives of an Arab World in continued transition. The articles deal with the Middle East from two different perspectives. The first three articles analyse the significance of the changes in the Middle East in an international perspective with a focus on the EU: How and to what degree has the ongoing transition of the Middle Eastern states affected the relations between the MENA-region and the EU and how can the developments be understood? The next two articles discuss theoretical challenges related to the understanding of transitional processes in a regional or local perspective, while the last two articles are case studies analyzing specific political developments in MENA-region countries.

Migration, Security, and Citizenship in the Middle East New Perspectives

The volume is the result of a workshop held in Amman in March 2011 organized by Center for Contemporary Middle East Studies, University of Southern Denmark and the Faculty for International Studies, University of Jordan

It examines the implications of migration into and from the Middle East with a particular focus on the significance of migration movements, policy reactions, and questions concerning human rights, governance, and citizenship in relation to policy making processes. The contributors cover different yet interrelated fields of migration research, presenting new perspectives on migration and security in the Middle East and showing the ways in which recent developments challenge our traditional interpretations of migration. They also discuss how migratory movements in the Middle East raise new questions related to human rights, governance, and citizenship, which demonstrate that lack of representation and political inclusion – already a systemic problem in the Middle East – is even more relevant with respect to migrant populations.
