Традиции отечественной арабистики. Интервью с Владимиром Исаевым, Институт востоковедения РАН
The Middle East and North Africa region remains the epicenter of world political processes, drawing attention of the main world powers. Thus, the Arab spring has become an important factor for social and political transformation of the region, and at the same time signaled the necessity for the experts in Arab studies to review the existing approaches in their research. Russian scholar Vladimir Aleksandrovich Isaev, in his turn, believes that the most urgent problem in Arabic studies in Russia today is the lack of inflow of younger experts, which will inevitably lead to its decay - and, consequently, cause problems for Russian policy in the region.
