ACRPS Call for Conference Papers

The Arab Center for Research and Policy Studies announces a call for papers for the second ACRPS Conference for Graduate Students in Western Universities, to be held from March 28-30, 2020 in Doha, Qatar. Prospective participants have until 30 July 2019 to submit proposals. This second round will build on the success of the first Arab Graduate Conference held in spring 2018, which established an unprecedented academic tradition in the Arab region. Out of 250 applicants, 83 students were invited to participate in the first round, presenting research based on their PhD dissertation projects, and benefitting from evaluative comments and suggestions from a pool of 40 specialists in various social science and humanities disciplines.

The conference will provide Arab doctoral students in the social sciences and humanities based at Western universities an open space to present papers rooted in their graduate studies. This novel conference will give the participants the chance to benefit from discussions with their peers and with established Arab academics. By holding the meeting in an Arab country, the conference will give the participants an opportunity to better acquaint themselves with an Arab research agenda as well as to create collegial, professional networks within the Arab region. Participants will also gain the opportunity to have their work published in Arabic, through one of the ACRPS’ publication channels.
