Arab Human Development Report 2003

Feb 13, 2013

The Report examines the status of Arab knowledge today in terms of demand, production and dissemination, and concludes that all three are ineffectual notwithstanding the abundance of Arab human capital. It contrasts
this state with the origins and outcomes of the region’s rich, enquiring and pluralistic cultural and intellectual heritage, confirming that the latter provide robust foundations on which to build a knowledge society. It however observes that the positive models found in Arab culture lack effective economic social, and political equivalents. The missing links are either buried in dust or smothered by ideologies, societal structures and values that inhibit critical thinking, cut Arabs off from their knowledgerich heritage and block the free flow of ideas and learning.
