Center for Intercultural Dialogue and Translation
|Key people||Sawsan Gabra Ayoub Founder|
The Center for Intercultural Dialogue and Translation (CIDT) is an Egyptian organization founded in 2005 to select, review, and translate Arab media publications The reviews are then published in the electronic magazine Arab-West Report.
The Center was founded as a civil company in response to great delays in obtaining Egyptian Non Government Organization (NGO) status for the Center for Arab-West Understanding because the work carried out for Arab-West Report needed to be carried out through a recognized legal organization. It is hard for organizations in Egypt to obtain NGO status and procedures may take years if applications are pushed to the Council of State for a verdict.
The Center for Intercultural Dialogue and Translation requested in 2006 recognition by the Anna Lindh Foundation as an organization that had no commercial objectives, was as such recognized and received support from the Foundation to establish the Electronic Network for Arab-West Understanding.
Since the Center for Arab West Understanding was recognized in 2008 the two organizations decided to cooperate in providing work for Arab-West Report but keep the two organizations two separate legal entities.
