The historic events of the Arab Awakening called attention to political reform efforts in the Middle East and North Africa. For nearly a decade, the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace published the Arab Reform Bulletin, the leading online journal on the major issues of political reform in the Arab world.
To better reflect the current developments on the ground and the breadth of the debate occurring in the region, the publication was relaunched as Sada, meaning reverberation or repercussion in Arabic. Sada offers original, bilingual analysis of political change and reform trends in the Arab world from leading thinkers and new voices in the region.
Sada is an online journal rooted in Carnegie Endowment's Middle East program that seeks to foster and enrich debate about key political, economic, and social issues in the Arab world and provides a venue for new and established voices to deliver reflective analysis on these issues.
Sada welcomes new authors and independent submissions in English or in Arabic. Our Recent Analysis and Series articles are published weekly and have a strict limit of 1200 words. These are balanced, well-supported, analytical articles providing unique perspectives into a particular country or regional issue. A small honorarium is awarded on publication and our team will gladly discuss translation options for selected articles.
We do not reprint articles previously published elsewhere. If you are a publication interested in reprinting a published Sada article, please refer to our Reprint Policy.
