Dubai, Amman, and Cairo: Experiencing the Old and New Middle East

Dialogue

Amman, Jordan Dubai, United Arab Emirates Cairo, Egypt Summer I, 2022

The Dubai, Amman, Cairo Dialogue provides students with an in-depth understanding of Middle East studies (politics, history, culture, gender, migration, and society), with a special focus on the rising power of the UAE (Dubai and Abu Dhabi), its pro-Israel and anti-Iran policies, plus traditional (“old”) Middle East politics: military-backed regimes (Egypt, Syria, Jordan), the Arab-Israeli Conflict and the continuing Syrian Civil War and Refugee Crisis.

Through formal and informal activities (lectures, site visits, dialogues), students engage with NU professors, guest lecturers and residents of UAE, Egypt, and Jordan via dialogue and discussion of current events, culture, history, and international relations and global issues.
