As the research arm of the Arab Studies Institute, FAMA is dedicated to research projects and initiatives that broaden our understanding and deepen our analysis of the Middle East.
Under the auspices of the Arab Studies Institute, the Forum on Arab and Muslim Affairs organizes and coordinates various ongoing research projects and initiatives. George Mason University's Middle East and Islamic Studies Program, Georgetown University, the American University in Cairo, Orient XXI, the Arab Barometer, SOAS, University of London, the Asfari Institute for Civil Society and Citizenship, the American University of Beirut, the Legal Agenda and Birzeit University are among FAMA's numerous cosponsors. In conjunction with these organizations and institutions, FAMA's research projects connect scholars globally and facilitate nuanced discussion of both country-specific issues and topics of regional importance. They take a wide range of forms, from academic articles, to workshops, to online resource guides and reading lists for students. Over the last two years, FAMA has also focused on expanding its cutting-edge audio/visual content offerings, including virtual lectures, panels, interviews, and an extensive list of podcasts. Much of this online audio/visual content is available at https://www.facebook.com/Jadaliyya/videos and statushour.com.
