Al Nakhlah is The Fletcher School's online journal on Southwest Asia and Islamic Civilization. Al Nakhlah, which is Arabic for date palm, features thoughtful and informative articles and editorials by Fletcher students and alumni. Published once per semester, Al Nakhlah is sponsored by The Fletcher School's Program for Southwest Asia and Islamic Civilization (SWAIC). The journal seeks to step beyond the traditional Middle East policy approach and embrace the broader range of political, economic, and cultural aspects of the larger Southwest Asian region--a region that spans the Eastern Mediterranean, Anatolia and the Sinai Peninsula in the West, covers the Arab heartland, the Caucasus and Central Asia, and reaches as far east as Iran, Pakistan, and the Gulf Region.
