Centre For Middle Eastern Studies of Lund University (CMES)
The Center for Middle Eastern Studies (CMES) was founded in 2007 to support, coordinate and expand research at Lund University (LU) on the Middle East. These efforts will encourage and produce research with a more innovative, critical and multidisciplinary approach towards Middle Eastern studies.
The goal of CMES is to produce research at the highest international level. However CMES believes that research is vital for individuals working in or with the Middle East, the center is investing in developing innovative means of communication that will allow CMES to frequently and effectively work with the business sector, state institutions and organizations, NGOs and others that can benefit from the shared knowledge.
While the imperative of providing new ideas and understandings of the Middle East is clear, the center’s innovative outreach programs allow it to contribute their knowledge, experience and networks to the rest of the world.See more
