Casa Árabe is once helping to coordinate the Middle East and Maghreb seminar in which forms part of the Diplomatic School's International University Master's Degree program in Diplomacy and International Relations, which is once again being held in a live classroom format this year. 

The seminar provides an introduction to today’s Arab world, a key region for understanding the development of international relations and diplomacy in recent decades, an area with which Spain engages in important political and economic relations as a result of its historical and cultural links with the region.

In a reduced schedule of ten hours, the seminar is divided into five sessions, with the first day dedicated to the region’s conflicts and geostrategic reorganization and a brief introduction to the configuration of states in the Arab world and the political and social transformations of recent years, given by Jesús Núñez, co-director of the IECAH, and Isaías Barreñada, a professor of International Relations at the UCM. The second day will be devoted to developments in political Islam in these countries, with a session given by Ignacio Álvarez-Ossorio, a professor of Arab and Islamic Studies at the UCM, and to analyzing the current state and future outlook of Spanish-Arab economic relations, given by Ana González Santamaría, a professor at the ESIC Business & Marketing School. The last day will end with an introduction to Spanish foreign policy on the Middle East and North Africa, given by Alberto Ucelay, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, European Union and Cooperation’s Director General for the Maghreb, the Mediterranean and the Middle East.
