ABOUT MEIS


MEIS – the Middle East Institute Switzerland – is Switzerland’s first think tank for the Middle East and North Africa in its global context. We provide stakeholders in government, the private sector, multilaterals, international organizations, research institutions and the general public with insight, policy advice and advisory services on the MENA region and the world.

MEIS focuses on the geopolitical, economic, technological, energy-related and cultural dynamics of the MENA region, and how MENA countries interact with each other, as well as with other countries and world regions, including the United States, Europe, China, Russia, India and Africa (MENA+).

Led by a team of dedicated professionals, MEIS is registered in Geneva since 2021.
