Arab Social Scientist Visitor Program

The University of Michigan will host a number of Arab social scientists. At a time of transition in the Arab world, when hope and uncertainty intermingle, U.S. engagement in general and collaboration between Arab and American scholars in particular are more important than ever. CPS recently hosted two Arab scholars: Khalil Shikaki, a Palestinian political scientist; and Sleheddine Ben Frej, a Tunisian sociologist. In addition to working on their own research projects, both had intensive interaction not only with U-M faculty but also our undergraduate and graduate students. Two scholars from Morocco are expected during 2016.
