The Arab Pulse represents a central nexus for empirical and data driven research focused on contemporary MENA politics, society, and values engaging scholars, policy makers, and the media from the region and beyond. It was founded in 2018 to provide an outlet for policy and analytic exchanges on issues of importance in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA).
The goal is to provide arguments backed up with empirical evidence to help observers around the globe to better understand politics in the MENA region.
We publish blogs from both junior and senior academics, writing about their particular area of expertise in the MENA region, challenges to study the MENA region using empirical methods, and methodological advancement regarding collecting empirical data in the region. We also publish pieces by policy makers, journalists, and members of civil society organizations engaging in quantitative work on the MENA.
