Institute for Social Justice and Conflict Resolution

Inclusive Governance Project

This project was launched with the support of Carnegie Corporation of New York. It aimed to foster the establishment of country and regional networks to promote a policy advocacy agenda that enables the promotion of inclusion of communities within the context of a pluralistic state. One major output of this project was the development of a database that can serve as an online resource for local and regional scholars. To that end, this project targeted three states – Egypt, Lebanon and Iraq – and set the stage for further research and policy reforms in other MENA countries.
