Advocacy by BRISMES Council

BRISMES advocates on behalf of members on issues that are relevant to our work to encourage and promote interest in Middle East Studies by supporting research and education, disseminating knowledge, deepening public understanding of the region within the UK and throughout the world and, where necessary, defending academic freedom and speaking out. Most of our advocacy is carried out through statements and letters from BRISMES Council and from the BRISMES Committee on Academic Freedom.

BRISMES Committee on Academic Freedom

The BRISMES Committee on Academic Freedom was set up to monitor and defend academic freedom in the research, study and teaching of Middle East Studies in the UK and anywhere in the world, including in academic institutions in the Middle East and North Africa.
