09/05/2023 - 11/05/2023, Online course

A geopolitical area of various definitions, the Middle East remains one of the most complex chessboards to analyze. In fact, there are numerous interests of regional and global players which contribute to making the area as central as it is unstable.

The course intends to explore the current configuration of economic, cultural and social policies in the Middle East and in the Gulf countries, with particular attention to the dynamics of conflict, instability, identity and cooperation. During the course, economic-political scenarios, relations with global players, factors of development and geopolitical change will be analysed, together with the role of relations between international players and the countries of the area.

The course is aimed at students, recent graduates, and professionals with a Social Sciences background (political science, economics, law) with a specific interest in the political and economic dynamics of the countries of the area, and at all those who, although with studies related to other disciplines, want to deepen the issues relating to the geopolitics of the area.
