FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: July 27, 2006

The Carnegie Endowment for International Peace is pleased to announce the launch of the Carnegie Arabic Web Portal. The Arabic-language resource is designed to reach new audiences in order to broaden the access to Carnegie’s growing volume of Arabic publications. Through these publications, the Middle East Program at the Carnegie Endowment hopes to build knowledge about political and economic reform, help political actors in the Arab world better understand the challenges facing them internationally, and add a comparative dimension to the understanding of reform in Arab countries.

The main feature of the Carnegie Arabic Web Portal is the Arabic-language version of the Arab Reform Bulletin, an online monthly journal on the latest political reform developments from Arab and Western perspectives (click here for the July issue). Also included are Arabic translations of select Carnegie Papers, commentaries on the Middle East and related subjects such as nuclear nonproliferation, as well as writings originally published in Arabic.
