For this issue, all editors have collaborated on a research project that generates analysis and reports on affairs in the Middle East. Compelled by the region's tremendous significance in current affairs, we sought our research to engage the nuances that have contoured its development and growth. Moving forward, we're planning to expand our coverage to issues that range from human rights, campaign finance, and education.
With us, the sky is the limit.
