POMED, the Open Society Institute, and the Democracy Coalition Project hosted an event marking the release of the English newly released report from the Cairo Institute for Human Rights Studies, From Exporting Terrorism to Exporting Repression: Human Rights in the Arab Region.

The presentation of the report included contributions from Bahey eldin Hassan, General Director of The Cairo Institute for Human Rights Studies (CIHRS) and Radwan Ziadeh, a visiting scholar at the Carr Center for Human Rights at Harvard University as well as the director of the Damascus Center for Human Rights Studies. Michele Dunne, Senior Associate at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, provided commentary and participated in the ensuing discussion. The event was moderated by Andrew Albertson, Executive Director of the Project on Middle East Democracy.

The report outlines the state of human rights in the Arab world focusing on specific human rights violators and the efforts of human rights activists. The report relies on contributions from sixty two human rights organizations within the region. All participants agreed that the U.S. should never leave human rights off the agenda when engaging with Arab states.
