</div> The Journal of International Mediterranean Studies (REIM) invites authors to submit articles for its 2016 special issue on“Local Politics in Contemporary Middle Eastern and North African Countries: Spaces of Political Continuity or Change?”.
This special issue aims to explore the MENA countries and their societies by analysing the interconnections between territory, politics and governance at the local level (small and mid-sized cities, rural areas, villages, and peripheral regions) and from a historical perspective. Some of the proposed guiding research questions for this special issue are the following: How can the role of local politics in state formation and transformation processes in MENA countries be analysed? How and to what extent do local politics try to form, influence and change political dynamics in these countries? How do the interactions between national and local politics help or hinder authoritarian rule? How do local institutions and actors engage in national political processes and to what extent can they influence them? What role do local institutions and actors play in current political, social and economic transformative processes in MENA countries?
The Journal of International Mediterranean Studies (REIM) is an open access digital and peer-reviewed publication dedicated to providing the widest possible dissemination to the latest research on the Arab-Islamic world and its relationship with Europe and North America. Therefore, the journal is open to all who, from any area of social sciences, is dedicated to those topics. The REIM is indexed and catalogued in DIALNET, DOAJ, Latindex, DICE, SCOPUS, Index Islamicus and Ulrich’s Web.
