Arab League

An international organization intended to foster political and economic cooperation, and to deal with matters of regional concern. For example, it was able to prevent full-scale civil war in Lebanon in 1958 and has managed the Arab boycott of Israel since 1948. Since the early 2000s, it has been involved in the attempt to broker peace with Israel and the Palestinians. It was established in 1945 and is based in Cairo.
