      Conflicts over the politics of the Middle East are corroding academic freedom on U.S. campuses Marc Lamont Hill attends a discussion during the American Black Film Festival in . In the essays of this persuasive collection, Academic Freedom after Septem the situation looks threatening and grim. The authors cite an increasing number of cases where Middle East studies faculty, most in departments of history or political science, have faced intense scrutiny, not only for their written work but also for how they lecture.

    Our intention was to explore the idea of academic freedom in a context which pushes that concept to its limits — the imbrication of Israeli academia in that country’s century-long war against the Palestinians, including the continuing occupation of the West Bank, Gaza, and East Jerusalem, and the international boycott campaign in support of.   Henry Reichman, the chair of the American Association of University Professors’ Committee A on Academic Freedom and Tenure, described the department’s inquiry into the Duke-UNC Consortium for Middle East Studies’ use of federal Title VI funds as “a chillingly inappropriate political intrusion into curricular decisions best made by.

      This is evident from countries’ ranking on the press freedom index. Out of states, seven in the Middle East—Syria, Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Bahrain, Egypt, Libya, and Iran—were in the bottom 10 percent. No Middle Eastern country made it to the top 30 percent, including Israel. Committee on Academic Freedom of the Middle East Studies Association seeks to foster the free exchange of knowledge as a human right and to inhibit infringements on that right by government restrictions on scholars. The United Nations’ Universal Declaration of Human Rights, Covenant on Civil and Political Rights and Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights provide the principal.

Despite its strong traditions of academic freedom, Germany experienced a virtually complete eclipse of such freedom during the period of Nazi rule (–45).

At the end of the 20th century, academic freedom seemed strongest in Europe and North America and weakest under various dictatorial regimes in Africa, Asia, and the Middle East.

Academic freedom in the Middle East is a contested and debated issue, which has caught regional and international attention. In the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region, in general, the authoritarian regimes have all showed a certain degree of opposition to every sort of freedom, academic one not excluded, regardless of the type of regime basis they had.

MESA is committed to ensuring academic freedom of expression, both within the region and in connection with the study of the region in North America and elsewhere.

The first edition of the handbook was based on ethnographic interviews with and research on academics working on the Middle East who. This paper’s intent is to examine the reasons of the shortcomings of research attention to the Middle East (ME) and Africa regions.

The objective of this study is to determine the reasons for and implications of the absence of ME- and Africa-based studies in outstanding international journals in the marketing field with a specific emphasis on the challenges in conducting and publishing.

Set in the 5th century AD, in a pre-Islamic Egypt and Syria, Azazeel is a tale of extraordinary magical realism, depicting the tensions between the new Christian religion and the time-honoured pagan beliefs.

These tensions are encapsulated in the character of Hypa, a monk who struggles internally between his faith and his ‘pagan’ inclinations towards the magical, the erotic and the poetic.

Academic freedom is a moral and legal concept expressing the conviction that the freedom of inquiry by faculty members is essential to the mission of the academy as well as the principles of academia, and that scholars should have freedom to teach or communicate ideas or facts (including those that are inconvenient to external political groups or to authorities) without being targeted for.

For those who study the Middle East/North Africa (MENA), academic freedom has long been an issue of serious concern.
