FIKR15 Related Publications

During FIKR15, the Arab Thought Foundation will publish a special issue of its Ofoq newsletter, titled “Arab Culture and Arab Intellectuals: Challenges and Responsibilities.” The issue will feature some 50 essays penned by prominent regional authors.

The ATF also has a policy of aligning its Annual Arab Report on Cultural Development with the theme of its FIKR conference. As such, this year’s report — the ninth in the series — is dedicated to the GCC, which celebrates its 35th anniversary (1981-2016), and the UAE, which was founded 45 years ago (1971-2016). The report, titled “Cultural Integration in the GCC: Policies, Institutions and Manifestations,” will highlight the cultural landscape of the GCC.
