"China and the Middle East/Mediterranean: Contemporary Perspectives" - Conference and Workshop (July 7-12, 2019)
The first edition of the "China and the Middle East/Mediterranean: Contemporary Perspectives" - Conference and Workshop is organized by the ChinaMed Research Program together with the Department of East Asian Studies and the Moshe Dayan Center for Middle Eastern and African Studies of Tel Aviv University. The goals for this program are to establish long-term research networks, to exchange ideas and promote new research on how China views its engagement in the “Mid-Med,” and how the “Mid-Med” views China’s engagement in these regions, as well as on concrete activities and policies related to these reciprocal views. The participants include top scholars and experts from Europe, the United States, China, and the Middle East, as well as a small group of 20 selected graduate students with a background in international and regional studies (Middle East and Asia/China in particular).
