On this page you will find all events, both seminars and conferences that are organized solely by the New Middle East-project and Friday-seminars that are organized in cooperation with the Centre for Islamic and Middle East Studies.
The conference marks the end of the New Middle East project (NEWME) that started in 2012. NEWME has studied political and ideological trends in the Middle East at a time when old patriarchal and autocratic structures in the region have crumbled. Two main topics will be addressed at the conference by panels composed of NEWME researchers and leading international Middle East experts. The first topic addresses the current status of democracy and political Islam in the Middle East. The second addresses political implications of the challenges to patriarchal structures (gender and age hierarchies) in the region.

His research has explored the intersection of Islamic political formations and religious discourse (praise poetry, conversion narratives, and debates on Islamic knowledge) among Sufi and Salafi Muslims in contemporary Sudan. He is currently working on a book manuscript that attempts an ethnography of the Islamic state in Sudan from 1989 to the present as well as a new project on secularism and the construction of a new Muslim minority in the nascent state of South Sudan.

The seminar will be addressing challenges of the central Yemeni government in obtaining, holding and administer its power amidtst informal actors competing with formal state authority.
The presentation will seek to answer the following three questions: Why is the Yemeni government increasingly loosing control of its territory? What are the consequences of the Arab spring to Yemen and its government’s ability to rule? What challenges will a new regime be facing?
