my name is Sham Jaff and I am the author of this blog.
I am of Kurdish descent and hold a Master’s degree in Middle Eastern Economy Studies. As a blogger and a freelance journalist I write about contemporary politics and culture in the Middle East a lot – particularly in Kurdistan.
My work has been published on Rudaw, Your Middle East, MideastYouth, Orient and publications of the German Near and Middle East Association. Here and there, I invite contributors to share personal interesting opinions on trending topics in the Middle East and elsewhere.
In my other category, books, I like to suggest and review books that I found interesting to you.
Have fun reading,
