Arab Barometer III

Home » Content » Arab Barometer III

The third wave of the Arab Democracy Barometer was fielded from 2012-2014 in 12 countries: Algeria, Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Libya, Morocco, Palestine, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, Tunisia, and Yemen. Like the first and second waves, the third wave seeks to measure and track over time citizen attitudes, values, and behavior patterns relating to pluralism, freedoms, tolerance and equal opportunity; social and inter-personal trust; social, religious and political identities; conceptions of governance and an understanding of democracy; and civic engagement and political participation.

Data from the third wave were made publicly available in the fall of 2014. The operational base for the third wave is the Center for Strategic Studies in Jordan (CSS).   

This third phase was funded by the Canadian International Research and Development Centre (IDRC) and the United States Institute for Peace (USIP).
