POMEPS Conversations

Subscribe to the “POMEPS Conversations” podcast.

“POMEPS Conversations” is a series of short video conversations between POMEPS Director Marc Lynch and prominent scholars in the field. Conversations cover a wide range of topics: issues specific to political science, the politics of particular countries in which scholars have expertise, or recently published works. We hope that this will become a useful and important archive of the constantly evolving field of political science and the Middle East.
