Course Description: This lecture provides a broad overview of the political structures, actors, and conflicts in the Maghreb, Mashreq, and Gulf (MMG). Starting from the time of colonialism, the lecture discusses the development of the state system in the region, as well as the different types of regimes that followed and the basic economic structures of these regimes. A second focus of the lecture is on social and political transformation processes in the region and on political actors outside the MMG state. While looking into these transformative processes, issues such as migration, the changing gender issue, and the phenomenon of Islamism are discussed. The third part of the lecture deals with the issue of conflict and cooperation in the Middle East and North Africa, as well as the role of external actors, especially those of the European Union and United States.
