Support for The Center for the Global South, American University, Washington, D.C.

The Center for the Global South is a multidimensional intellectual resource, co-founded by Jamal Daniel, which examines critical issues that affect the developing countries of the world. Established in 1992, the Center raises awareness of the challenges facing the region, analyzes policy, and provides opinion and policy-makers with input from the Global South on an ongoing basis.

The nations of Africa, Latin America, and most of Asia, collectively known as the Global South, face great political, social, and economic upheavals including poverty, hunger, disease, environmental degradation, human and civil rights abuses, ethnic and regional conflicts and mass displacements of refugees. The Global South includes nearly 157 of a total of 184 recognized states in the world and the emerging markets in the Global South offer immense hope for economic growth, investment and cultural contribution.

The Center for Global South was created to assess the many challenges and to find and implement solutions through international cooperation, as well as through sharing the human material resources of all nations, rich and poor alike.

The Levant Foundation has actively participated at the policy level and since 1999 they have also provided financial support to the Center for the Global South.
