A KOU Academic Explains the Recent Events in the Region

The Middle Eastern region has been ravaged in recent years by facts and events that place their countries in the context of fundamental and historical transformations. Koya University academics could not stand neutral without contributing to the understanding and interpretation of these events and their change, whether by presenting reference papers at international conferences and institutions or through media activity by presenting political analysis and vision on the platforms of most important Arab satellite channels. 

Dr. Serbast Nabi, an Assistant Professor of Political Philosophy at Koya University, is one of the most prominent academic and media figures in presence and influence in this regard, at the level of the universities of Kurdistan/Iraq and the countries of the region, as well. As a researcher and contributor, Dr. Serbast has daily diligence and remarkable presence on media platforms, in making a panorama for political analysis of fateful events, and in establishing a vision or an objective approach.
