APSA MENA Workshops


The American Political Science Association’s MENA Workshop program is a multi-year effort to support political science research and networking among early-career scholars across in the Arab Middle East and North Africa. Through a series of annual political science workshops, the program extends APSA’s engagement with the international political science community and strengthen efforts to support research networks linking American scholars with their colleagues overseas. The primary goal of APSA’s MENA Workshops is to enhance the capacities of political scientists and their resources in the Arab MENA region, while also providing a forum for supporting their ongoing research. For more information about the project’s scope and goals, please see “About the Project”.
