Directing and Editing of a Web-magazine on the Middle East


IDE-JETRO’s new web-magazine, the Middle East Review, is designed to be a new media which contains information and analyses on contemporary issues in the political, economic, societal, and international fields in the Middle East and Islamic World for the purpose of Japanese policy making in this region.
The second issue of the Middle East Review, the successor to our Contemporary Middle East, is planned to be issued February. Our project is prepared to plan and edit the contents of this web-magazine in a proper manner.
