The Center for Arab Progress is an independent, non-profit, research institute that aims at developing critical thinking using the academics efforts in place. It is especially focused on shaping and communicating a balanced position on the issues concerning the Middle East, the Arabs and Islamic communities of the West.
The Center was initiated by Arab researchers and academics in Britain and the Arab region, as a platform that encourages all new analysis on Arab and Muslim issues in the West as well as the Middle East in general. This initiative seeks to be away from any political and ideological agendas.
The Center mainly targets social, cultural and political issues of the Arab and Muslim minorities living in the West. Thus, it is contributing to preserving their identity as ethnic minorities and encouraging their positive expansion in European societies.
The Center also covers regional and international policies impacting Arab and Palestinian issues through the publication of policy papers. These policy papers utilize research and academic studies, and contribute to a continuous dialogue between specialists in the political and intellectual fields. It is based on values governed by professionalism, objectivity, scientific approach, and progressive thinking that interacts with the latest contemporary developments in the field.
