Columbia University is forming a Commission for Ethics and Social Science Research in the Arab region. Applications for participation in the program will be accepted until November 9th.

The project aims to mobilize a network of scholars and practitioners to assess the landscape of social and humanitarian research in the Arab world and develop guidelines for its responsible, ethical, and constructive implementation.

The Commission will begin its work with a series of talks on a variety of topics connected to the region, and invites candidates with experience in conducting research in the region to participate in discussions, including students, professors, consultants, journalists, analysts, librarians, archivists, and other interested individuals. The first master classes will be held in the winter of 2020–2021. To participate in the project, you must fill out an online registration form.
