Center Formation


The Studies and Research Center has witnessed many developmental stages since its inception and the beginning of its work. The idea of forming this center goes back to the second meeting of Arab Interior Ministers in Baghdad, 1978. This meeting called for the establishment of a research center at an advanced level of specialization to carry out criminal studies and research. This was a recognition of the huge need for such work and the collective efforts needed to achieve it.

When Naif Arab University for Security Sciences first began its work, academic research was carried out by the Department of Research; it was carried out by experts and academic staff from outside of the University. The Department then developed into a section of the University containing the center for research, a publishing house, and the security library; the Department was then finally developed into the Studies and Research Center.
