TOMidEast is the first summer school in Europe and Italy focused specifically on MENA politics. The 2021 edition critically unpacks power, politics, and governance, exploring the role they have in re-defining the trajectories of Arab states. Lectures will include discussions held in English presented by International scholars and experts on the MENA region: Marie-Noelle Abi Yaghi (Lebanon Support), Gilbert Achcar (SOAS), Adam Hanieh (University of Exeter), Francesco Cavatorta (Laval University), Tamirace Fakhoury (Lebanese American University), Fanar Haddad (London School of Economics), Nadine Sika (American University of Cairo), Andrea Teti (Aberdeen University) and Bilge Yabanci (Ca' Foscari Venezia).
Candidates are selected on the basis of their academic and professional profile. 10 Freetorino scholarships are available which will reduce the participation fees. Applications are open from the 14th March to 17th June 2021.
The 2021 Edition will be held entirely online due to Covid-19 regulations through the CISCO Webex platform.
