The Cairo Review

The Cairo Review of Global Affairs is the quarterly journal of the School of Global Affairs and Public Policy (GAPP) at American University in Cairo (AUC). Its primary aim is to be a focal point for policymakers, officials, academics, experts, journalists, students, and others in the Middle East region who follow global affairs. It is also intended to be a platform that gives perspectives from the region a greater voice in international policy conversations and debates.

The key objective of GAPP Discussion Paper Series is to provide a platform whereby work in progress by the GAPP and international research community can be made accessible to the wider national, regional and international group of scholars, professionals, intellectuals, policy-makers and implementers. The Discussion Paper Series welcomes submission by all members of these communities including graduate students, who want to engage a critical analysis of the juncture of theory and practice.
