Duke University Middle East Studies Center

Mission Statement

The Duke University Middle East Studies Center is a hub for research, education, and outreach that serves as a forum at the local, national and international levels. We prepare tomorrow’s leaders by equipping them with knowledge about Middle Eastern languages, cultures, and societies. Our center is distinguished by its trans-regional approach to the Middle East. We approach the Middle East as a unit extending from the Mediterranean to the Indian Ocean. Our approach emphasizes interdisciplinarity, comparativity, and connectivity.
