Who we are:
The Arab Political Science Network (APSN) is a scholarly collaborative initiative that seeks to support, enhance and increase scholars’ research and teaching outputs in the study of political science, and its sub and related fields. APSN works with graduate students and faculty members researching political science issues, with special emphasis on scholars based in Arab countries. APSN plans to implement innovative and creative research and teaching approaches that empowers regionally based scholars while connecting them with peers and colleagues inside and outside the region. As an active research network and professional development forum for scholars from the region, APSN will be well-positioned to contribute to academic and policy debates about local, regional and foreign politics; sponsor and organize panels at regional and international forums; and become a leading regional partner on political science research.
