About

The journal


Oxford Middle East Review (OMER), established 2016 at St Antony’s College, Oxford, is a student-run, peer-reviewed, interdisciplinary journal for discussion and debate on issues relating to the Middle East and North Africa and the study of these regions. The overarching goal is to create an engaging forum that links academic work with contemporary societal and political issues. In other words: to bring a sense of urgency and wider societal relevance to the work of Middle Eastern Studies’ students and researchers.

Oxford Middle East Review is a non-partisan project that seeks to bring together a wide range of individuals with different backgrounds, beliefs, ideas, aspirations, viewpoints, and methodologies, while nonetheless sharing an adherence to principles of equality, social justice, freedom of speech, and tolerance.
