The Observatoire du monde arabo-musulman et du Sahel (Observatoire of Arab-Muslim World and Sahel) aims to give an experts and researchers glances over interconnected and sometimes conflictual zones.

The Observatoire contributes to reinforce the knowledge of this complex area through an interdisciplinary approach mixing French and Foreigners policy analysts, strategy experts, economists, sociologists and anthropologists and the exchange with various administrations. Round-tables, seminars, are organized on a regular basis (with an Annual Conference) and notes and studies published.

We put the hinge on the fact that the Observatoire pursues a weekly survey on Arab social networks (published in French.)
