Current Projects

Feasibility Study for a Middle East Regional Impact Fund (MERIF)

Feasibility Study for a Middle East Regional Impact Fund (MERIF)

MEIS is currently evaluating the feasibility for a Middle East Regional Impact Fund (MERIF) as a vehicle to enhance economic integration in an enlarged GCC region plus Yemen, Iran and Iraq (GCC+3). Given the Chinese-mediated Saudi-Iranian reconciliation of March 2023, this project seeks to organize economic diplomacy dialogues with multilateral development banks, trade-enabling bodies, chambers of commerce, international organizations and the private sector.
Energy Transition and Socio-Economic Development in Iraq

Energy Transition and Socio-Economic Development in Iraq

MEIS is pursuing a collaboration with an Iraqi oil company, focusing on the impact of Iraq’s clean energy transition on the country’s socio-economic growth and business climate. The project develops actionable policies based on Iraqi socio-economic structural realities and the dissemination of the research during a specifically-designed energy forum.
Sudan National Reconciliation Dialogue

Sudan National Reconciliation Dialogue

In collaboration with an Istanbul-based Sudanese think tank and partners in Switzerland, MEIS is exploring to convene a National Reconciliation Dialogue on Sudan, including representatives of all political segments and specifically focused on the Sudanese youth.
Policy Workshop on the Sahel Region

Policy Workshop on the Sahel Region

In partnership with a partner in Abu Dhabi, MEIS is co-organizing a conference on Africa, specifically a specially-designed workshop on the Sahel region in October 2024. The workshop is designed to enable policy stakeholders to find constructive solutions for the Sahel region, focusing on multilateral institutions as well as national and local actors.
