“Publish or Perish.”  We decided to start this project using one of the most influential mottos in the academic world. INSAMER is set to interpret its own sensitivities concerning the new wave of dynamics in the world. We undertake to ease human suffering by conducting practice-based research and producing knowledge that provides guidance to researchers and policy-makers.

The first issue of Inter Notional magazine deals with social tension in North Africa and the Middle East. Whether another Arab spring is possible or not, and the political dynamics in Egypt, Sudan, Algeria and Ethiopia are some of our cases in this issue. Inter notional also touches on turkey’s civil-military relations’ breaking points as its cover story.

This issue also looks at the thematic problems of international politics such as humanitarian aid, environmental concerns, and the Islamic economy.
