When Tarik M. Yousef spoke at a press conference in Egypt last December to commemorate the opening of the Arab Council for the Social Sciences (ACSS) office in Cairo, he made his mission clear: he, like other members of the Dubai School of Government (DSG) and the ACSS, want to bridge the ‘knowledge gap’ that exists in the Arab world.
At the conference, he said: “The launch of the Council (ACSS) will pave the way for a larger role of social science research in the Arab region, and empower leaders to make policy decisions based on sound research.”
The ACSS was developed with the support of the DSG, where Yousef serves as dean. He is also a senior fellow in the Wolfensohn Center for Development at the Brookings Institution and the Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government.
Yousef received his Ph.D. in economics from Harvard University.
