Welcome to the Pages of the ZMO

The Leibniz-Zentrum Moderner Orient (ZMO) is the only German research institute devoted to an interdisciplinary and comparative study of the Middle East, Africa, Central Asia, South and Southeast Asia from a historical perspective. Current research focuses on the interaction between predominantly Muslim societies and their relations with non-Muslim neighbours.

ZMO was founded in 1996 as one of six independent, non-profit research centers, the Geisteswissenschaftliche Zentren e.V. On 1 January 2017 ZMO was admitted to the joint research promotion by the Bund-Länder Commission and became a member of the Leibniz Association. Currently it is funded mainly by the Senate Chancellery Higher Education and Research of the Federal State of Berlin, the German Research Association DFG, and the Federal Ministry of Education and Research. Its current director is Prof. Ulrike Freitag, a Modern Middle East historian.
