About Rowaq Arabi

An electronic journal issued by the Cairo Institute for Human Rights Studies (CIHRS), Rowaq Arabi is a platform for researchers and rights advocates that offers in-depth discussions and analyses of human rights policies and developments in the Middle East and North Africa, utilizing approaches drawn from the social sciences, humanities, and law.

Rowaq Arabi seeks to understand the political, social, economic, cultural, and historical contexts, as well as international and regional factors, that influence respect for human rights. It is also a space for the discussion of new developments related to international and regional instruments for the protection of human rights.

CIHRS began publishing Rowaq Arabi in 1996. The journal was founded and its philosophy articulated by Egyptian researcher and thinker Dr. Mohamed al-Sayed Said, who also co-founded the CIHRS; he served as the editor of the journal until his death in 2009.

By 2017, Rowaq Arabi had released 70 issues. CIHRS is now publishing the journal as an electronic forum for contributions from researchers throughout the year, in the hope of reaching a broader audience of readers interested in understanding local, regional, and international human rights issues.

The Rowaq Arabi family will re-release the contents of previous issues, which constitute a rich legacy documenting significant intellectual and political discussions and debates on human rights in Arab countries and featuring prominent researchers, writers, and rights activists, some of whom are no longer with us.

Rowaq Arabi publishes contributions on themes including but not limited to:
