The Levant Letters are popular scholarly writings on the Middle East published six times a year by the Finnish Institute in the Middle East on its website. The objective and purpose of these writings is to dig underneath the layers of politics, history, culture, arts and languages of the Middle East and offer readers analysed, digested and well-thought views. Writings bring forth subjects of the past and present – all the subjects that are under the mandate of the Finnish Institute in the Middle East. The writings are united by their actuality and academic relevance. Overarching objective is to strengthen interest in, enhance understanding and deepen knowledge of the Middle East.
The series was discontinued in 2019. The institute publishes another blog series in Finnish, Lähi-itä NYT in the following address: lahi-itanyt.fi
