The Rubin Center for Research in International Affairs (formerly the Global Research in International Affairs (GLORIA) Center), founded by the late Professor Barry Rubin, is a research center located at the Interdisciplinary Center (IDC) Herzliya, Israel’s first private institution of higher learning.
The Rubin Center produces up-to-date, accurate analysis and reporting on modern Middle East affairs, using primary sources and exclusive on-the-ground contacts throughout the region. Rubin Center researchers regularly visit the region, witnessing developments first-hand. In addition to its frontline reporting, the Rubin Center offers consultancy services to government, news media, and academic institutions.
Our quarterly journal, the Middle East Review of International Affairs (MERIA) covers the latest developments in the region from a wide variety of viewpoints, including U.S. policy, radical movements, and minorities, and has a circulation of over 25,000. The center also publishes Turkish Studies quarterly, which is listed in the Social Sciences Citation Index (SSCI) and focuses on the history, politics, and foreign policy of modern Turkey.
