CBRL awards funding and research support each year following its strategic plan for research. Awards are given according to specific research themes and priorities. In addition, CBRL has one major strategic research initiative, Exploring Identities in the Levant, which combines elements from many of CBRL's key research themes.
Some of our own research is directly funded by the British Academy.Recent projects have included "Higher Education and Political Change in the Arab World: What Role for the Social Sciences?", "Twenty years of the 'Oslo peace paradigm': an assessment of its achievements and limitations" and "The Deep Past as a Social Asset in the Levant".
Academy funding has enabled us to employ a series of post-doctoral research staff on these projects.
