Pluralism and Inclusion After the Arab Uprisings

The Baker Institute Center for the Middle East, in collaboration with the Carnegie Corporation of New York, launched a two-year project to confront the governance crisis in the Middle East and identify effective and lasting policy interventions that foster more inclusive and pluralistic states in the region.

The project's findings have been published throughout the spring and summer of 2018 in English. The policy briefs are now available in Arabic. Please follow links below for relevant policy briefs.

For more information on the pluralism study, visit the project's web page.
