The Arab Studies Society "is a non-governmental organization that was founded in 1980 as a research and documentation center to record the historical, cultural and political history of Palestinians. The Arab Studies Society, which shares the same premises as the Orient House, is composed of a library which holds some 14,000 books, documents, press, and personalities archive and a photos and tapes department...

" The Arab Studies Society also has two closely affiliated institutions under its auspices. One is called the Land Research Center which is dedicated to the research of land in the Palestinian Territories including settlement monitoring, soil surveys, land use, etc. and the other is a newly initiated project called the Jerusalem Multi-Sector Review which is designed to draw strategic developmental models for Jerusalem in areas from habitation to tourism and create models to stimulate socio-economic growth and improvement of services."
