Al Nakhlah is The Fletcher School's online journal on Southwest Asia and Islamic Civilization sponsored by The Fletcher School's Program for Southwest Asia and Islamic Civilization (SWAIC). Al Nakhlah, which is Arabic for date palm, features articles and editorials by Fletcher students and alumni. 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 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. Al Nakhlah is the first online journal established by graduate students of international affairs that focuses on this particular region.
