The Middle East and Central Asia Unit was established in April 2018 within the Department of Political Studies. The research covers a region, which has it center in the Middle East and Central Asia, while reaching out farther to North Africa, Europe or Far East - as long as it focuses on local Muslim communities. The staff consists of five employees - two associate professors, two assistant professors and one reserach assistant.
