Enhancing Human Rights Knowledge from the Arab World
This project assembles, annotates, translates, analyses and disseminates the largest ever collection of Arabic-language human rights writings, with the goal of bringing Arabic-language discourses, histories and politics of human rights in the region to the fore in contemporary research.
A new reference database
The project aims to build the infrastructure of a unique, publicly accessible, reference database of human rights related literature in the Arab world.
This is a strategic partnership and collaboration between the Center for Middle Eastern Studies and the Raoul Wallenberg Institute for Human Rights (Lund University), Världens Bibliotek, the Documentation and Freedom of Expression Unit (Malmö City Archives), the Aga Khan University (United Kingdom), and the Arab Institute for Human Rights (Tunisia).
