Arabic Publication Center
Since 2001 and with the support of the National Endowment for Democracy (NED), the National Democratic Institute’s work to strengthen democratic practices and institutions in the MENA region has been bolstered by its Arabic Publications Center. NDI is the world’s largest publisher of Arabic-language democracy-related resources and reference materials, and its Beirut-based Arabic Publications Center serves as a clearinghouse of training guides and other materials for NDI programs and partners. Political activists, civic leaders, party operatives, academics and government officials use the manuals, which cover a wide range of topics. To date, the Center has published 85 manuals and distributed more than 400,000 copies to local partners through NDI offices across the MENA region.
