In response to wide levels of interest among the target audience, the Arab Center for Research and Policy Studies will extend the submission deadline for prospective participants in our upcoming conference for Arab Graduate Students in Western Universities. Scholars who meet the criteria set out in the background paper have until Wednesday, 25 October, 2017 to submit their abstracts for consideration.

The conference will provide an unprecedented opportunity for Arab doctoral students based in Western universities, and from the range of social sciences and humanities, to present their research to the Arab academic community. In doing so, the Arab graduate students who take part in the proceedings will receive invaluable feedback on their work.
