With globalisation and regional shifts in economy and governance taking place all over the world, the Arab world is witnessing great changes along with the resurrection of its intellectual and social dynamic activism.
There is a need to re-examine the development of the modern Arab world in all aspects, namely political, legal, cultural, industrial and the like. This landscape of modern developments provides a firm foundation for building upon in the future, and also a way to maintain years of modernisation in the Arab world and keep this process continuous.
This special issue solicits papers related to the modern developments in the Arab world in the past few hundreds years. It is to provide a compelling forum for researchers and practitioners to present their results and to track state-of-the-art research that is particularly inspired by revolutionary changes in the Arab world in all areas, including political, intellectual, cultural, legal or societal.
Suitable topics include, but are not limited to:
- Science and technology
- Legal systems
- Social issues
- Modernity and post-modernity
- Philosophical studies
