ARI - Arab Reform Initiative
Mission and objectives
The Arab Reform Initiative (ARI) is the leading independent Arab think tank, founded in 2005 to articulate a home-grown agenda for democratic change. It operates on the principles of impartiality, social justice, and diversity. It conducts policy analysis and research, while providing a platform for inspirational voices. It is governed by a Plenary of its members and an Executive Committee.
ARI produces original research informed by local experiences and partners with institutions to achieve impact across the Arab world and globally. It empowers individuals and institutions to develop their own concept of policy solutions, mobilizes a wide range of local public intellectuals, scholars, media and civil society organisations, policy makers and activists from political and social movements in various Arab countries and generates policy recommendations addressed to political leaders.
