The Arab Center for Research and Policy Studies will be attending the 47th annual meeting of the Middle East Studies Association (MESA) to be held in New Orleans from October 10-13, 2013. The Center will take part in the conference's largest-ever annual book bazaar, putting forth the latest publications on Middle Eastern studies. By connecting with other publishers and centers from across the world, we look forward to taking our publications international and promoting our newest publication endeavors, including Tabayyun, Omran, and Siyasat Arabia. The conference itself offers the Center an opportunity to promote the upcoming launch of The Doha Institute, an academic institution to be launched in 2015 that will offer graduate degrees, professional certifications.

The conference is projected to include more than 200 panels on a myriad topics relating to the Middle East and a book exhibit featuring more than 90 exhibitors.
