About the MEQ

Policymakers, opinion-makers, academics, and journalists turn first to the Quarterly, for in-depth analysis of the rapidly-changing landscape of the world's most volatile region. It publishes groundbreaking studies, exclusive interviews, insightful commentary, and hard-hitting reviews that tackle the entire range of contemporary concerns — from politics to economics to culture, across a region that stretches from Morocco to Afghanistan.

Founded by Daniel Pipes and edited by Jonathan Spyer, the Quarterly is available in full-text on this website.

The Quarterly, a peer-reviewed publication, welcomes submissions of original articles, and will consider pre-publication of chapters from forthcoming books. Priority is given to timely articles impacting today's critical issues. For more information on submitting a manuscript, click here.
