"It is my contention that the attitude of debasement and erasure towards Arab regionalism that is common-place in International Relations weakens state and non-state regional organizations in the Arab world and very few are benefiting from it. That is why I propose that the several regional institutions that bind the Arab region together receive more scholarly and political attention and support. As an IR and Middle East scholar participating in the making of the world I live in, I believe it is my responsibility to convey this message"(Silvia Ferabolli).
''The Arab region is a field of meaningful politics for Arab states, institutions and citizens". (Silvia Ferabolli)
