Research Projects

Program on Governance and Local Development (GLD)

The Arab uprisings have opened previously unavailable possibilities to study and engage in issues of governance and local development. The Program on Governance and Local Development aims to establish a leading program for interdisciplinary research on Arab governance and local development. GLD will bring together scholars from political science, sociology, economics, anthropology and other related fields to produce cutting edge research on local governance challenges and policies. Findings will be disseminated to a broad range of scholarly and policy audiences, in Arabic and English.

Transitional Governance Project (TGP)

The Transitional Governance Project is a collaborative effort that emerged in 2012 from independent, synergistic activities of its members. TGP aims to enhance our understanding of the pressures, processes and prospects for transitions in order to support policymakers engaged in improvening governance.
