“Critical Approaches to Development in the MENA Region'' Initiative
  • The “Critical Approaches to Development in the MENA Region'' Initiative is a project housed at the D​epartment of​ Sociology, Anthropology and Media Studies​​ at the American University of Beirut (AUB).

    ​​​​​​​​​​​​​This initiative aims to address questions of development in the South West Asia and North Africa region from a critical perspective that centers social and environmental justice. For this end, this project brings together scholars and thinkers from the region (and beyond) to tackle some of the main questions and challenges of development today through a series of academic activities, publications, reading groups, and workshops.​

    تهدف هذه المبادرة الى معالجة مسائل التنمية في منطقة جنوب غرب اسيا وشمال افريقيا من منظور نقدي يركز على العدالة الاجتماعية والبيئية. لتحقيق هذه الغاية، يجمع مشروعنا اكاديميين ومفكرين من المنطقة (وخارجها) لمعالجة بعض المسائل الهامة وتحديات التنمية الآنية من خلال أنشطة اكاديمية، منشورات، مجموعات قراءة، وورش عمل تتناول مواضيع التنمية.
