The Program on Arab Reform and Democracy (ARD) at CDDRL, in partnership with the Arab Studies Institute, is pleased to announce the launch Mofeed-19, a 19-minute video podcast that discusses research efforts pertaining to the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on the Arab world. The podcast is part of the Mofeed-19 Project, an initiative that builds foundational resources for understanding how the politics and societies of the Arab world have adapted in light of the pandemic. Mofeed-19 is supported in part by the Open Society Foundation.
Cohosted by ARD Scholars Amr Hamzawy and Hesham Sallam, the first episode features Princeton University Professor of Politics and Arab Barometer Cofounder and Principal Investigator Amaney Jamal, who was recently named next dean of the Princeton School of Public and International Affairs. The episode puts into focus Arab public attitudes toward government responses to the Covid-19 pandemic and vaccination efforts.
