Topics related to events in the Middle East appear daily in our mass media. In addition to migration and Islamic extremism, there are other topics that are a significant factor in these phenomena. These are, for example, demographic changes causing problems with unemployment, climate change and related soil degradation, or the economic ambitions of states associated with increasing defense spending. The Czech-Slovak Institute of Oriental Studies was established in order to bring the reader a deeper knowledge of current, past and future events affecting the world with an emphasis on the specifics of Middle Eastern realities.
