Welcome to the Workshop on Arab Political Development
Committed to inclusive analysis of the political obstacles and opportunities facing the contemporary Arab world, the Workshop on Arab Political Development seeks to become a premiere intellectual hub with an impact on scholarly debates and policy. The workshop brings together academics, policy experts, and students of Arab politics to critically and openly engage one another on a variety of topics. While questions of democratization are of special salience, the workshop will stage conversations on topics as diverse as voice and accountability, economic opportunities, representation, empowerment, gender equality, human rights, social progress, oil, and war. It is an affiliate of the Princeton Institute for International and Regional Studies. Navigate this Web site with the buttons to the left to learn more.
