Major group affiliation: Non-governmental Orgnizations
Affiliation with other organizations: AUB- IFI created a consortium of Arab Public Research Institute (CAPRI)>. The CAPRI project was launched in fall 2010 as part of the RAPP program particularly aimed at studying the research and policy links related to Policy Research Institutes (PRIs). The term PRI is used in the place of "think tank" because the latter term is a Western concept that does not fully incorporate the range of institutions with policy impact in the Arab world. In order to better understand PRIs' research and policy links, it is essential to examine PRIs' role and impact. This requires the conceptual disaggregation of PRIs as institutes on the one hand, and PRIs within the policy-making process on the other.
