EMPIRES IN THE MIDDLE EAST AND THE MAGHREB: THE SHAPING OF HOPES AND PERSPECTIVES
Oxford: 28 and 29 March 2022
The aim of this conference is to examine how European colonialism and great power rivalry in the Middle East and North Africa have shaped the perspectives of the peoples in these countries and their hopes for their future. Besides the European powers that established their colonial hegemony in these countries, the conference will also deal with the influence of countries, such as the United States of America and Germany, which extended their influence through diplomacy, financial and military aid, and education.
