The Institute for Women's Studies in the Arab World was founded in 1973. The history of the Institute is closely linked to that of the first women's college in the Middle East, the America Junior College for Women, which was established in 1924 by the Presbyterian Mission and evolved into today's Lebanese American University. The College, which educated Middle Eastern women for half a century, became coed in 1973. In order to honor the college's unique heritage, the Institute for Women's Studies in the Arab World was established that year.

The Arab Foundations Forum (AFF) was established out of the need for a networking structure for foundations in the Arab region to strengthen the capacity and infrastructure of strategic philanthropy. Currently, the Forum provides a platform for dialogue among various foundations in the region as well as the rest of the world. It serves as an advocate for more effective principles, practices, programs and policies. Its initiatives also include bringing philanthropists together to share information, learn from, and support one another to reinforce social development through mobilizing private capital for public benefit. In a long term perspective, AFF's goal is to strengthen the Arab philanthropy by providing Arab funders with an association of foundations in the Arab region to foster dialogue, network, learn and collaborate among themselves and with partners.

The mission of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) is to promote policies that will improve the economic and social well-being of people around the world.

The OECD provides a forum in which governments can work together to share experiences and seek solutions to common problems. We work with governments to understand what drives economic, social and environmental change. We measure productivity and global flows of trade and investment. We analyse and compare data to predict future trends. We set international standards on a wide range of things, from agriculture and tax to the safety of chemicals.

We look, too, at issues that directly affect the lives of ordinary people, like how much they pay in taxes and social security, and how much leisure time they can take. We compare how different countries’ school systems are readying their young people for modern life, and how different countries’ pension systems will look after their citizens in old age.
