Established in April 2020, the Merian Centre for Advanced Studies in the Maghreb (MECAM) has become an integral part of the Tunisian and Maghreb academic landscape. Based in Tunis, the MECAM is a Tunisian-German research centre that intends to be a platform for interdisciplinary, transregional, and intergenerational research based on humanities and social sciences.

MECAM explores the connection between multidimensional disparity and the possibilities of building and negotiating future-oriented ideas and models in the societies of today’s Maghreb, as launched by the “Arab Spring”. Therefore, it focuses on complex social, political, cultural and economic processes and issues of common interest and concern that divide and connect the Maghreb, the Middle East and Europe historically and in the modern time– e.g. beliefs, distribution of resources, cultural transformations, migration, rule of law, socio-economic conflicts, and (transitional) justice. These exemplified pressing issues converge in the central theme of MECAM: "Imagining Futures - Dealing with Disparity". Under this label, MECAM is planning its Closing Conference at the end of March 2023 in Tunis.

Registrations for the conference can be submitted until 30 January.
