Research and Publications

AHRA offers a reputable platform to local and international academics, activists, and researchers to engage directly with and frame discourses in the debate regarding the role of human rights in the Arab world. Through collaborative initiatives with publishing partners and the dissemination of essay collections and other publications, AHRA seeks to support the work of up-and-coming scholars who have taken an interest in investing their critical thinking in contributing to the human rights paradigm in the context of the Arab region, but who may not be presented with the opportunity to be published in their country due to academic censorship and the lack of independence of higher educational establishments.
