Middle East. Globalization. Identity. Culture. Complexity. Conflict.


Identity and culture are important factors in globalization era. They influence and affected by internal, regional and global material and ideational structures. Identity and culture are not solely the matter of cohesion and interdependency in domestic and foreign relations. we can see the improvement of the integration and interdependency in most regions of the global political economy through creation of common cognitive region and same inter subjectivities. But, in some regions, the issue is more complex. In fact, in some places and spaces, we see the escalation of tension and conflict instead of peace and interdependency. The Middle East is one of the turbulent regions of the world that, witness the escalations of war and conflict in the globalization era. The main question of this article is that: What is the impact of Complex Identities and Cultures on the Middle East international relations in globalization era? The hypothesis of the research is that: Complex Identities and Cultures in the Middle East leads to the escalation of antagonism in the region in the context and framework of public diplomacy and social media as the dominant trends of globalization. As a matter of fact, culture and identity in it's all kinds and aspects, especially the religious and ethnic kinds, is the causes of conflict and war in the middle east in the globalization era. The most important tributary of what is called "killing in the name of religion, nationality and etcetera".
