Ashoka Fellow
Fellow Since 2014
    This description of Elie Abousaab's work was prepared when Elie Abousaab was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2014.
    In societies with low or non-existing civic engagement, Elie is reversing the passivity of citizens. Starting with non-political issues in which people can hold the government responsible, he is creating a new culture which values engaged citizens and accountable governments in the Arab world.
