Forthcoming Papers

As part of its series, the Middle East Centre will publish a number of papers each academic year. Here's a list of forthcoming papers by MEC fellows and staff.

The New Intellectuals in Iran: Trends in Contemporary Conscious Music
Dr Malihe Maghazei

This paper discusses the formation of a multi-genre conscious music in Iran in recent years. It uses the concept of conscious music to show how music is used to challenge the dominant socio-cultural and political structures and discourses and present a whole new worldview.

Climate Change in the Jordan River Basin
Dr Michael Mason

This paper presents the findings of the research project led by Dr Mason, in collaboration with Birzeit University, addressing climate vulnerable rural communities within the national territories of the watershed of the Jordan River (Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, Israel and the occupied Palestinian territory) which is perhaps the most physically and politically stressed river basin in the world, critically applying a human security approach. The aim of the research is to develop improved policy responses for climate risk management within the Jordan River Basin through a better understanding of the linkages between climate change, adaptation and human security.
