The Merian Centre for Advanced Studies in the Maghreb (MECAM) was established in 2020 at the Université de Tunis/Tunisia to strengthen cooperation in the Humanities and Social Sciences in and across the Maghreb, the Middle East, and Europe. Under its guiding theme “Imagining Futures –Dealing with Disparity”, MECAM aims to contribute to research and debate on the (re)negotiation of complex social and political conditions and expectations, norms and legacies in the wake of the “Arab Spring” in the Maghreb, the Middle East, Europe and beyond. The necessary backdrop to these processes are the disparities and inequalities that divide the Maghreb and the neighbouring regions – both historically and currently. The centre invites scholars at different stages of their career. Fellows work within the framework of five interdisciplinary research fields (interdisciplinary research groups, IFG’s, in the first two years). Furthermore, MECAM organizes various events, such as seminars, lectures, public debates and traveling academies that connect researchers and discuss research outcomes. MECAM is a joint initiative of seven German and Tunisian universities and research institutions and is funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), and supported by the Université de Tunis.
