Knowledge Production in the Arab World: The impossible Promise.
Knowledge Production in the Arab World provides a wealth of vital and useful insights on the dynamics of research in the Arab region. This meticulously well-researched volume is an inside look at what goes on behind the doors of Arab universities, research centers, and policy-makers' saloons to find "exits" or possible ways out of the current research impasse. The book authored by Sari Hanafi, a professor of sociology at AUB, and Rigas Arvanitis, a sociologist at IRD, detects what render a research in the Arab world an irrelevant/ineffective experience, a difficult mission or ‘an/the impossible promise' at national, regional and global levels.
