The CMENAS Review is an interdisciplinary on-line review. Our aim is to provide a location for writers and readers of Middle East and North African politics and society  to engage in regular dialogue. We begin by developing some space for the publication of short and mid length articles which will be reviewed and edited by the staff of CMENAS. In time, we hope to develop the CMENAS Review into a more formal publication with regular contributors and an extended editorial team.

Focus and Scope:The CMENAS Review is dedicated to the publication of scholarly and scientific material. Our on-line publication focuses on socially relevant issues related to political, economic and socio-cultural problems and events in the Middle East and North Africa as well as the international dimension of the Middle East and North Africa. Our goal is to provide insights and analysis rather than just current news which can be sourced from elsewhere. However, we do not exclude informed op-eds on current issues once they have been through the refereeing process, in the same manner as all other articles submitted to the CMENAS Review.

The CMENAS Review is open to a myriad of ideas and perspectives but we take our responsibility of free speech seriously and are vigilant in respecting all groups and will not publish material that is racist or discriminatory on the basis of race, ethnicity, religion, gender, or sexual orientation. At the CMENAS Review we aim to promote understanding, tolerance and ideas that work towards peace and unity in the Middle East and North Africa and beyond.

Each issue of the journal contains three 2,500-3000 word articles, and one or two 1,500-2,000 considered pieces from an established figure in the field, and two book review of between 500 and 750 words each. Full details of the publication are available at
