Welcome to the Pages of the ZMO

The Zentrum Moderner Orient (ZMO) is the only German research institute devoted to an interdisciplinary and comparative study of the Middle East, Africa, Central Asia, South and Southeast Asia from a historical perspective. Current research focuses on the interaction between predominantly Muslim societies and their relations with non-Muslim neighbours. ZMO was founded in 1996 as one of six independent, non-profit research centres. The core funding of ZMO is provided by the Senate of Berlin and the Federal Ministry for Education and Research. Its current director is Prof. Ulrike Freitag, a Modern Middle East historian.
