This issue of Perspectives is devoted to minority-majority relationships in the Middle East and North Africa. We portrait minorities beyond ethnic and religious divide such as vegans in Morocco, artists in Syria or cyclists in Beirut.
We took the liberty of illustrating this issue with a regional adaptation of the German Süddeutsche Magazin's 'Perceived truths' displayed in diagram form by Katharina Schmidt. In a way these transform'common perceptions' into thought-provoking rather than scientific graphs.
We hope that the ‘majority’ of you will enjoy this ‘minority’ issue.
