’Ignorance leads to fear, fear leads to hate, and hate leads to violence. This is the equation’’ Averroes-Islamic thinker
Countering and preventing violent extremism has emerged as a priority for regional and international organizations alike. The Arab center for scientific research and humane studies has been very active in promoting moderate Islam far from dogmas and fundamentalism.
We have published books, articles and organized conferences and seminars promoting liberal values and tolerance. Our work has reached hundreds of thousands of people across the Arab World.
While most of our publications are in Arabic, we wanted to create a platform on contemporary issues affecting the Islamic world in English in order to share our perspective with our international partners and friends throughout the world.
We believe that progress comes from challenging what we hear and considering other views. We hope that you will enjoy reading our articles and diffusing them.
