Independent and cutting-edge analysis on global affairs

This issue of TPQ takes up a wide range of problems plaguing the Middle East and North Africa today: from internal conflicts and proxy wars to rising sectarianism and the predicament of minorities to strategic incoherence against a potentially global jihadist threat. The need for cooperation and moderation is articulated by authors of diverse conviction, background, and professional affiliation.

This issue comes at a time when important game changers are in store for the Middle East. The potential effects of a nuclear deal with Iran is one of the factors addressed by many authors here. Another important development in the short term will be the June 2015 parliamentary elections in Turkey, which will have important implications for the Kurdish peace process in itself with far-reaching regional repercussions.
