CCAS Occasional Papers

For more than 40 years, CCAS published a series of “Occasional Papers” featuring scholarship from both established and emerging voices from around the globe on issues related to the contemporary Arab world. Due to the changing landscape of knowledge production, CCAS no longer publishes new Occasional Papers, but we are pleased to make this historic body of scholarship available to the public through our website. Please feel free to peruse and download the papers here for academic and personal use. For reprint permissions, please contact CCAS Multimedia and Publications Editor Vicki Valosik at vicki.valosik@georgetown.edu.
