The Middle East Institute is proud to launch Arab Transitions, an initiative to provide in-depth analysis of the historic changes taking place in the Arab world in the wake of the 2011 uprisings. Through scholarship and outreach, with an emphasis on highlighting diverse voices from the region, Arab Transitions seeks to increase understanding of the Arab world's political, social and economic transformations in order to inform wise policy decisions both in the U.S. and internationally.
