Ortadoğu Yıllığı (Middle East Yearbook)

A publication of:
Sakarya University, Institute of Social Sciences


Middle East Yearbook has been published since 2005 with the principle that “having a sound idea cannot be established without sound knowledge and reliable information”. It aims specifically to inform its readers about the domestic and international developments within the countries located in one of the most important and volatile regions of the world, namely the Middle East. In addition to studies on internal and external political issues, economic developments of these countries are examined. In addition, each country’s relations with Turkey are covered extensively. In publishing such a yearbook, our objectives are twofold. First is to contribute to the relevant literature, which has rather lacked reliable, uncensored and detailed studies. Second is to constitute an alternative and landmark knowledge source against the speculative and unreliable analyses often encountered in the media.
