Mission

The National Council's mission is educational. It seeks to enhance American awareness, knowledge, and understanding of the Arab countries, the Mideast, and the Islamic world. Its means for doing so encompass but are not limited to programs for leadership development, people-to-people exchanges, lectures, publications, an annual Arab-U.S. policymakers conference, and the participation of American students and faculty in Arab world study experiences. As a public service, the Council also serves as an information clearinghouse and participant in national, state, and local grassroots outreach to media, think tanks, and select community, civic, educational, business, and professional associations. In these ways the Council helps strengthen and expand the overall Arab-U.S. relationship.

Annual Arab-U.S. Policymakers Conference

Since 1991, the National Council’s annual Arab-U.S. Policymakers Conference has gathered internationally renowned specialists to analyze, discuss, and debate issues of over-arching importance to the American and Arab people’s needs, concerns, interests, and key foreign policy objectives. Over two-days, Arab and American leaders from government, the military, business, and academe share privileged information, insight, and recommendations that are vitally important to the definition of issues, the ordering of priorities, and the direction of policy formulation and implementation in American and Arab governments alike.

Population(s) Served

Established in 1984, the National Council's Malone Fellowship program provides an opportunity for American professionals from academia, government, the media, the military, and representatives and scholars of public policy research institutes to gain exposure to the realities of the Arab world and Arab-U.S. relations in briefings and conversations with their Arab counterparts.

Population(s) Served

Established in 1983, the National Council’s program simulating a League of Arab States summit allows students to hone their skills in the give-and-take of reasoned argument, spirited debate, the specialized language of diplomacy, the dynamics of coalition-building, and the utilization of parliamentary procedure while building awareness of the intricacies shaping policies in the Arab world.

Population(s) Served

During summers, the National Council offers select university undergraduate and graduate students a ten-week professional, academic, and career opportunity internship in Washington, DC. The program features an energizing and demanding mix of professional involvement, intellectual challenge, career exploration, and cultural encounters designed to provide interns a rich and varied training and educational experience.

Population(s) Served

On a year-round basis, the National Council sponsors public educational programs in the nation's capital and the greater Washington metropolitan area where an assemblage of domestic and internationally prominent specialists analyze, discuss, and debate issues of importance to the relationship between the U.S. and the Arab countries, the Middle East, and the Islamic world.

Population(s) Served

The National Council offers students Arabic language and area studies opportunities in Lebanon and Morocco as well as ten-day to two-week study visits to select Arab countries.

Population(s) Served

Washington, DC is host to numerous museums and cultural institutions – but none that feature the culture, development, economics, history, and societies of Arab countries. Neither is there a major center in the heart of the national capital that showcases the extraordinary range of Arab contributions to science and technology – indeed, to the word’s civilizations and to humankind in general. The Arab Cultural Institute will do justice to these topics, to Arabs, and to America’s relationship with this vitally important part of the world.
