  • Critical Reflections on Middle East Economics
  • Hassan Hakimian (HBKU and SOAS)
  • The knowledge of Middle Eastern economies as an autonomous field is of relatively recent origins and has evolved in uneven ways. Unlike some other regions, which have played a more active role in the genesis or evolution of development theory and practice (notably Latin America), the contri­bution of Middle Eastern economies has been more limited and to a large extent confined to recent decades.
