The Al Mahrousa Center for Publishing, Press Services and Information played an important role over the past three decades in enriching the political, human rights advocacy and cultural realms between different political groups. Al Mahrousa Center has played a pivotal role in the social movement in Egyptian civil society by advancing democratic and progressive values and and civil rights. Since its establishment in 1986, Al Mahrousa has successfully pioneered and established the biggest news archive of Egyptian and Arab newspapers. This news archive is the biggest in the Arab countries. The archive has a thematic index to facilitate research processes. In turn, this has paved the way for Al Mahroussa Center to establish its political research unit in the early 1990s. This research unit produced large volumes of research on, for examples, the status of democracy in Egypt and the Arab countries; Egyptian foreign policy (with namely Iran, Turkey, EU, the U.S. and Israel); terrorism in Egypt and in Arab countries; political Islam and the new social movements. Accordingly, Al Mahroussa Center took part in several important initiatives regionally and internationally with civil society actors since it is recognized as a significant specialized research unit on democratic transformation.
