Moreover, the course focuses on questions of development of nationalist movements in the Ottoman Empire insisting on the imperial ideology of Panislamism as common matrix of the emergence of the Turkish (the version of 'secular Islam'), as well as the Arab nationalism (the version of 'nation-Umma'). Studying the rise of the Pan-arabic movement in the versions of Nasserism and Baathism the analysis includes also the conflicts of the Arab states with Israel focusing on the Palestinian question as well as the progressive shifting of the hegemony in the Arab world from Egypt to Saudi Arabia.
