Political-Economical Analyses of the MENA Region


The Middle East Review, IDE-JETRO's web-magazine, is designed to be a new media publication containing information and analyses about the political, economic, societal, and international topics in the drastically changing contemporary MENA region for the benefit of Japanese specialists, policy makers and businessmen.
As a magazine succeeding our previous Contemporary Middle East, its 4th volume is scheduled to be published in March 2017 following the present 3rd issue. This research project is prepared for the purpose of properly planning, managing, editing, and publishing the magazine in fiscal year 2016.
