The Arab Institute for Women


AiW collaborates with specialized scholars and professionals to strengthen research on and by women. We commission and publish original research to help expand the body of knowledge necessary to further social and policy change at the national and regional levels.

Gender research is essential to enhancing our understanding of the causes and consequences of gendered practices and interactions at the social, political and economic level. It is only through in-depth understanding of the mechanisms and factors that influence such practices that we design interventions and push for policy change that can ensure justice and equity for all.
