Al Nakhlah is The Fletcher School's online journal on Southwest Asia and
Islamic Civilization. Al Nakhlah, which is Arabic for date palm, features
thoughtful and informative articles and editorials by Fletcher students and
Published once per semester, Al Nakhlah is sponsored by The Fletcher
School¹s Program on Southwest Asia and Islamic Civilization (SWAIC). The
journal seeks to step beyond the traditional Middle East policy approach and
embrace the broader range of political, economic, and cultural aspects of
the larger Southwest Asian region--a region that spans the Eastern
Mediterranean, Anatolia and the Sinai Peninsula in the West, covers the Arab
heartland, the Caucasus and Central Asia, and reaches as far east as Iran,
Pakistan, and the Gulf Region. Al Nakhlah is the first online journal
established by graduate students of international affairs that focuses on
this particular region.
al Nakhlah is produced by Fletcher students and published online twice per year.
This online journal serves as a source for information and increased
understanding on issues related to Southwest Asia and Islamic Civilization. We
welcome contributions from members of the Fletcher community (including current
students, alumni, and faculty) relating to the history, politics, economics, and
culture of the Middle East, Central Asia, and the Caucasus. Al Nakhlah may also
include book reviews, photographs, and essays contributed by members of The
Abstracts available online. Articles available in PDF format.
