One-third of the Board’s members were replaced each year to bring in Arab experts on the particular topic of the report under preparation. Care was exercised to ensure that regionally sensitive themes such as culture, religion, human rights and women’s empowerment were analyzed by Arab authorities and contextualized.
A team of nine core and over thirty contributing Arab scholars worked independently of the sponsoring institutions to research and write the Reports, which were prepared in Arabic and translated into English.
