Bespoke Research

We provide stakeholders in government, the private sector, international organizations and NGOs with tailored research and analysis on relevant trends, themes, sectors and actors across the the Middle East and North Africa.

Through our locally-embedded network of researchers, analysts and practitioners we create special access points between our partners and relevant local actors on the ground. This enriches our top-down structural political analysis with real-time, bottom-up perspectives from the field, thereby conveying a unique perspective on the region’s challenges, as well as guidance on crucial opportunities.

Expert Briefings

We provide stakeholders in government, the private sector, international organizations and NGOs with on-demand private briefings on relevant events, trends and developments in the MENA region, as well as on specific areas of interest to our partners.

Leveraging our region-wide research network, we connect stakeholders to locally-embedded experts on the ground to provide insight that is informed by independent ethnographic field research, providing senior decision-makers and their teams with a deep dive into a topic area, development or trend in the Middle East and North Africa.

Strategic Insight

We support our partners’ strategic decision-making in complex and volatile environments in the MENA region, providing critical insight to steer through uncertainty and complexity and guide important strategic decisions.

The strategic insight emanating through our on-the-ground and locally embedded networks provides stakeholders with the assurance to execute key decisions with confidence and clarity and be effective in the region’s often challenging and, in many cases, opaque political, commercial and regulatory environments. We thus provide strategic insight for stakeholders in the private and public sectors wishing to be effective in the Middle East and North Africa.

Rapid Response Webinars

We provide stakeholders in government, the private sector, international organizations and NGOs with timely and critical updates and reactions to key events and developments as they unfold on the streets and in the decision-making chambers of MENA capitals.

Due to our network of researchers, analysts, activists, journalists and practitioners, who are locally embedded and are fluent in the languages and cultures of their countries of expertise, we provide rapid and unique insight into events as they unfold on the ground, as well as quick analysis on their potential ramifications on political decision-making at the national, regional and international levels.

Political Risk Advisory

We combine our expertise on the history, politics and economics of the MENA region with timely and actionable insight for stakeholders in government, the private sector, international organizations and NGOs, supporting these partners in anticipating risks and leveraging opportunities.

We capitalize on the collective geopolitical insight in our network of researchers and professionals towards enabling stakeholders to improve their decision-making on issues, trends and developments that are critical to the region. We work closely with stakeholders to understand their interests, priorities and concerns, tailoring our advisory services through in-person meetings, private briefings and video conferences.

Stakeholder Mapping

We create visually appealing stakeholder mappings as a means to identify and categorize key actors, sectors, trends and developments with the goal of guiding political, strategic and commercial decision-making.

By leveraging the collective expertise of our region-wide and locally-embedded network of researchers and practitioners, we deliver intelligence on key regional trends and markets. Our comprehensive representations of stakeholders who influence processes and decisions focus on market drivers, restraints and opportunities, as well as on the impact of these variables on the political choices of governments, private sector players and civil society actors in the Middle East and North Africa.

Capacity Building

We support individuals and organizations in the Middle East and North Africa in developing and improving research and policy partnerships through personalized training and knowledge exchange.

By integrating students and research professionals from the region in our advisory, policy and research projects, we leverage our global network of established experts towards providing young talent with quality access to education, as well as rigorous training in research methods. We do so in line with UN Development Goal #4, which aims to ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities, leveraging our connections in Switzerland/Europe and the countries of the Middle East and North Africa.
