The Middle East Law and Governance (MELG) is a peer-reviewed venue for scholarly analysis on issues of governance and social change in the Middle East and North Africa region. Filling a gap in the academic literature, MELG tackles with breadth and depth compelling governance issues generally, and in the Middle East specifically. The journal addresses interested readers in academia, government, and the civil society sector. The MELG brings a global commitment to path-breaking scholarship and draws on the expertise and leadership of editorial and advisory boards of respected faculty and scholars from around the world.
The journal welcomes research that explores law, society, and/or governance topics, broadly construed. The MELG’s interdisciplinary approach is meant to attract scholars from a wide range of disciplines (anthropology, economics, history, political science, religious studies, and so on). Though a journal with a regional focus, MELG provides a forum for those interested in governance as a point of intersection or a point of departure in their research. The MELG is broad in scope, discussing issues of critical importance to the Middle East without presupposing conceptual, analytic or even geographic boundaries.
