AL TATAWAE: VOLUNTEERING IN THE ARAB WORLD |
New from Civil Society Press. No region of the world has received as much attention in the last five years as the Arab World. But virtually nothing has been written about the work of volunteers from those nations and their role in building civil society.
Al-Tatawae helps us understand the social, religious, and cultural forces shaping volunteering in the Arab World. It is a seminal study, combining quantitative and qualitative research to paint a fascinating picture of a part of the volunteer community unknown to most of us.
“This book attempts to comprehend and inventory the features of volunteers in the Arab World, focusing on three Arab Nations – Egypt, Jordan and Palestine. This work focuses on "the volunteering individual" who constitutes the backbone of the voluntary sector.”
- Dr. Amani Kandil, Executive Director, Arab Network for NGOs
