Special Issue on: "Arab Contribution to Human Civilization and Civilization Studies"

Guest Editors:

With globalisation and regional shifts in economy and governance taking place all over the world, the Arab world is witnessing great changes and the resurrection of its intellectual and social dynamic activism.

There is a need to re-examine the role of Arab intellectuals and scientists from the beginning of Arab/Islamic civilization to modern times. This landscape of intellectuality provides a firm foundation for the future, and is restoring West-East interactive dialogue as it previously existed for the benefit of humanity.

This special issue solicits papers related to the contributions of Arab intellectuals and scientists to humanity, and also papers which discuss Arab/Muslim critiques and studies on civilization issues. It is to provide a compelling forum for researchers and practitioners to present their results and to track state-of-the-art research that is particularly inspired by revolutionary changes in the Arab world in all areas, including political, intellectual, cultural or societal.
