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.
