Middle East Law and Governance

An Interdisciplinary Journal

Editor: Janine A. Clark
Middle East Law and Governance (MELG) is a peer-reviewed social science journal that offers contributors an opportunity to reflect upon and engage issues pertaining to governance and social, economic, and ideological transformations in the modern Middle East and North Africa region. We broadly conceive of governance as the processes and decision-making leading to the creation, reinforcement or reproduction of social norms and/or institutions.
As an interdisciplinary journal for critical scholarly analysis, MELG publishes original research from scholars representing a wide range of disciplines (anthropology, economics, gender studies, legal studies, political science, religious studies, urban studies and so on) and encourages methodologically diverse contributions with strong empirical grounding in field research. In addition to individual and special issue submissions, MELG publishes roundtables, field notes and case comments.
For more information, please contact Janine A. Clark.
