The Center of Arab Women for Training and Research (CAWTAR) was created in 1993 under the auspices of His Royal Highness, Prince Talal Ibn Abdulaziz, in response to the desire of a number of Arab governments, local and regional civil organizations, and regional and international institutions to establish a center of academic research and field studies relating to the status of women.
In addition to collecting data, indicators and statistics on women' s economic,social and political conditions, CAWTAR analyzes and disseminates this important information in order to improve the lives of women in the Arab world.
Their mission is to contribute to empowering Arab women to fully exercise their human rights, through generating knowledge in order to produce a base of evidence to enhance the capacity of Arab institutions in promoting and advocating for gender equality and the promotion of women to decisionmaking positions.
