James Zogby: What Arab Voices Are Telling Us
James Zogby, Founder and President, Arab American Institute; Advisor, Zogby International Polling Firm; Author, Arab Voices: What They Are Saying to Us, and Why It Matters
Based on a new Zogby International poll, Zogby reveals what people in the Middle East are really thinking right now and how we can better understand them. The poll results deliver insight on how people in the region view American society, world affairs, their own position in the world, and a host of other issues so that we can truly grasp their perspective beyond assumptions and bias. Zogby is the founder and president of the Arab American Institute, a Washington, D.C.-based organization which serves as the political and policy research arm of the Arab American community. Since the mid-1990s he has been a senior advisor to Zogby International (ZI), the polling firm founded by his brother John. At ZI he has supervised a number of path-breaking public-opinion polling projects in countries across the Middle East.
