Dear friends and colleagues, ladies and gentlemen, When I took office some eight months ago, I did not know what I was in for. I don’t think that half a year ago anybody would have predicted the ousting of long-time president Mubarak and the revolution that followed 25 January. Egypt as a country, its people and society and certainly also its universities and research institutions have undergone tremendous change since then and are still in the process of transformation. The revolution is still ongoing – however, nobody knows yet which destination the Egyptian revolutionary journey is finally arriving at. In these both difficult and exciting times, Germany and the DAAD will continue to work very closely with its Egyptian partners. In fact, it is most likely that the staunch support for Egypt, its universities and scholars will be further increased and intensified in the coming weeks and months. To name but one example, the DAAD will be able to offer more scholarships for young leaders and experts in the field of Public Policy and Good Governance (http:// cairo.daad.de/ppgg, see also article in this newsletter) thanks to an increased budget provided by the German Foreign Office. Furthermore the DAAD is providing a platform to analyse the ongoing changes and assess the perspectives of political transition in Egypt by a series of debates, called Cairo Talks on Transition and Change (CTTC) which we are organising with our partners from the Freie Universität Berlin and the Orient Institut Beirut. Please watch out for information about the next CTTC on our website. The next event in the series is scheduled for the 9 May and will reflect on the role of the military in the ongoing revolution. Best wishes, Dr. Michael Harms

The Orient-Institute Beirut (OIB) The Orient-Institute Beirut (OIB) conducts and supports Near East and the Arab World related research on history and contemporary matters. Starting off from a historical and philological approach, the research projects at the Institute now cover such areas as the social sciences, political studies, religious studies, history and literary studies as well as philology. Collaboration with institutions and individuals in the region, as well as research on source material from the region are considered prerequisites in any viable project and constitute a common conceptual framework. Since 2009, the institute has an office in Cairo. The institute has an important library (ca. 130.000 items) frequented by researchers from Lebanon and from abroad. It regularly employs six (post doc) research associates at Beirut, and a number of external researchers related to research projects. In addition, doctoral fellowships and short-term post-doc scholarships are available. Two book series are published by the Institute. One is dedicated to the critical edition of mostly Arabic manuscripts (Bibliotheca Islamica), the other publishes studies on history, society, politics and literature of the region (Beiruter Texte und Studien).
