TARII is very excited to announced that we have received a grant from the Carnegie Corporation of New York as part of "support of 'problem-solving analysis and action' in the Middle East and North Africa. The funding aims to boost social science education and resources, while building a stronger evidence base for public policies."
Our project "aims to improve social science methods in Iraqi universities and create a network among institutions. The project will also undertake 'an evaluation of the current state of undergraduate education' focusing on five universities, including Mosul University — which has a long history of excellence, but it served as a headquarters for Islamic State occupation of the city until its liberation this summer."
