Asfar’s e-Journal is a great way for young people (and other interested parties) to write about their interests, both academic and otherwise, and the e-Journal will consider every suggestion received.

We are open to a large range of topics on the Middle East and North Africa, the Caucasus  and the Balkans, including:

Other regions and subjects will also be considered, however, our main focus remains the Middle East, North Africa, the Caucasus and the Balkans.

The e-Journal allows young writers and other creative thinkers, to explore these topics, improve their writing skills and develop and share their interests with the support of the e-Journal Editorial team.

Moreover, the diverse range of topics the e-Journal covers creates space for both articles with an academic focus and non-academic articles.

Creative submissions such as photo essays are also welcome, and other diverse subjects.

More information can be provided on these if you get in touch.

The summer call for submissions has now closed, but for more information on opportunities in the near future, our future call for submissions, or to discuss potential article topics, please contact us at
