What is the Model Arab League?

The Model Arab League is a student leadership development program from the National Council on US-Arab Relations. Representing one of the Arab League's 22 member-states, student delegates work to achieve consensus on questions with which real-life diplomats wrestle daily. They write, debate, and pass resolutions that seek to resolve some of the Arab countries' most difficult challenges. The dynamics and interactive nature of the role-playing among the students stimulate critical thinking, heighten creativity, expand knowledge, and cultivate understanding as no book, video, or coursework ever could.

Students learn about the politics and history of the Arab world, and the arts of diplomacy and public speech. MAL helps prepare students to be knowledgeable, well-trained, and effective citizens as well as civic and public affairs leaders. Universities and high schools from across the United States are invited to participate.
