Welcome to the Research Program at the Cairo 52 Legal Research Institute, where our focus is on advancing knowledge, promoting social justice, and empowering marginalised communities through the mobilization of research and data to advocate for the human rights of gender and sexual minorities in the Middle East and North Africa region.

Our research program encompasses a wide range of activities aimed at deepening our understanding of key social issues, advocating for human rights, and driving positive change. Through rigorous research, data collection, and analysis, we aim to uncover the underlying causes of injustice and inequality and develop evidence-based solutions to address them. Documentation is a fundamental component of our research program. We are committed to meticulously documenting human rights violations, legal injustices, and social inequalities that impact marginalised communities in the Middle East and North Africa region. By thoroughly recording and archiving this information, we ensure that the voices and experiences of those most affected by injustice are preserved and amplified.

In addition to documentation, our research program also involves collecting data and conducting empirical research to inform our advocacy efforts and policy recommendations. Whether through surveys, interviews, or case studies, we employ a variety of research methods to gather valuable insights into the social, legal, and political landscape of the region. At Cairo 52, our research program is guided by principles of transparency, integrity, and social responsibility. We firmly believe that research has the potential to drive positive change and create a more just and equitable society for all. We invite you to join us as we work towards a future where human rights are respected, social justice is upheld, and marginalised communities are empowered to thrive.
