Rubin Center Set to Close Soon if Unfunded

November 29th 2017

Throughout his year-and-half battle with cancer, Prof. Barry Rubin, founder of Global Research in International Affairs (GLORIA) Center—today the Rubin Center—continued to write and analyze events in the region and across the globe. When he could no longer type, he dictated. Even from his hospital bed, while hooked up to an IV dispensing chemo, he struggled to get the words out, publishing his final article just two weeks before his untimely death.
In his final days, he was very much occupied with the future of the Rubin (GLORIA) Center. It was his dream that the center would continue on the path he had set.

“My approach,” he once remarked, “…is to ignore the Western scholarly literature and to examine the facts on the ground.” He stressed that events “should be approached as objectively as possible with an honest attempt to be accurate, to produce evidence proving one’s assertions, and to follow where the facts lead.”

For nearly two decades, the Rubin Center’s exclusive frontline reporting has brought you breaking stories, analysis, and research. Rubin researchers have reported from areas inaccessible to most researchers and journalists, often risking their lives to bring you the most accurate and up-to-date analysis.

The Rubin Center has been completely self-funded, receiving no financial assistance from the Interdisciplinary Center (IDC) Herzliya. As a non-profit organization, the center has always operated on a very modest budget-- investing its time and money in frontline reporting and research. Prof. Rubin also believed in encouraging talented young scholars and invested a great deal in helping those who were unrecognized develop and grow. The Rubin Fellowship program was founded in 2014 in his memory. Our first Rubin Fellow, Aymenn Jawad Al-Tamimi, is now a renowned expert sought out by government officials and whose work has been published in major media outlets.

Many more promising young researchers have joined the Rubin Center since, including Dr. Seth J. Frantzman, Dave McAvoy, Sarit Zehavi, Neri Zilber, and Aynur Bashirova. In our final conversations with Prof. Rubin, he urged us to continue the research. If you value our work, please make a tax-deductible contribution today. In doing so, you would be supporting groundbreaking research, promising young scholars, and Barry Rubin’s legacy. If we do not receive funding, the Rubin Center will be closing its doors at the end of December 2017.
