Cairo Papers in Social Science

Cairo Papers in Social Science has been in existence since 1977 and became an e-journal in 2015. It is a monograph series that publishes material related to development in the Middle East and to issues and problems of concern to the region. Governed by an Editorial Board composed of AUC faculty from the social science departments and Social Research Center, Cairo Papers draws its material primarily from research produced in the region. Now in its 35th volume, the series has published a wide range of studies on contemporary social, economic, political, and historical issues
