The Arab Thought Foundation

The Arab Thought Foundation is an international independent non-governmental organization. It has no inclination to any party or religious group; it is rather dedicated to promote the Nation’s pride with all its principles, values and ethics, in an atmosphere of a responsible freedom.

ATF deals with different knowledge fields, like science, medicine, economy, business administration, mass media and literature; with a goal to unite intellectual and cultural efforts that seek Arab nations’ solidarity, renaissance and conservation of its values.

The Arab Thought Foundation was instituted in Beirut on May 5, 2000, on the occasion of proclaiming Beirut Arab Culture Capital. During this celebration HRH Prince Khalid Al Faisal called for a solidarity initiative that joins finance and intellectual competencies. This is to be adopted by an Arab non-governmental organization that seeks to promote Arab renaissance and solidarity.
