Middle East Institute. From an informal gathering of like-minded colleagues, the Institute has evolved into a highly-regarded forum for debate, one where a wide range of opinions can be presented and challenged. Points of view that are underrepresented in American media often find voice through MEI’s publications and events, ensuring that a balanced and sophisticated understanding of the issues is available to the public.
The Middle East Media Research Institute. The Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) explores the Middle East and South Asia through their media. MEMRI bridges the language gap between the West and the Middle East and South Asia, providing timely translations of Arabic, Farsi, Urdu-Pashtu and Dari media, as well as original analysis of political, ideological, intellectual, social, cultural, and religious trends.
Middle East Political and Economic Institute. The MEPEI is an independent, non-profit organization that serves to promote greater understanding of the Middle East, its diverse culture, languages, and people, and to create links between individuals, institutions, and communities.
Middle East Institute. Columbia University. The Middle East Institute of Columbia University, founded in 1954, has helped to set the national pace in developing an interdisciplinary approach to the study of the Middle East from the rise of Islam to the present, with a primary focus on the 19th and 20th centuries. Fostering an inter-regional and multi-disciplinary approach to the region, the Institute focuses on the Arab countries, Armenia, Iran, Israel, Turkey, Central Asia, and Muslim Diaspora communities.
Middle East Institute. National University of Singapore. The Middle East Institute (MEI) is an autonomous research institute within the National University of Singapore (NUS). The Institute’s primary objectives are to produce timely, reliable, and non-partisan analyses of issues and to disseminate such knowledge and insights to policymakers, the business community, academia, and civil society.
Institute for Middle East Understanding. The Institute for Middle East Understanding (IMEU) is an independent non-profit organization that provides journalists with quick access to information about Palestine and the Palestinians, as well as expert sources, both in the United States and in the Middle East. Both through its website and its staff, the IMEU works with journalists to increase the public’s understanding about the socio-economic, political and cultural aspects of Palestine, Palestinians and Palestinian Americans.
London Middle East Institute. The London Middle East Institute (LMEI) draws upon the resources of London and SOAS to provide teaching, training, research, publication, consultancy, outreach and other services related to the Middle East. The LMEI serves as a neutral forum for the consideration of issues concerning that region and helps to create links between individuals and institutions with academic, commercial, diplomatic, media or other specialisations.
American Middle East Institute. The American Middle East Institute (AMEI) is an independent, non-profit organization, headquartered in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. AMEI is focused on building business, educational and cultural ties between the United States and the countries of the Middle East. We believe these kinds of connections represent a powerful form of diplomacy.
Institute of the Middle East. The Institute of the Middle East known before 2005 as the Institute of Israeli and the Middle Eastern Studies was established in the middle of the 90’s on the base of the Institute of Israel. The idea to set up in Moscow the specialized center for the Israeli Studies including such problems as the State itself and the organized Jewish Diaspora, was proposed by specialists in 1990. Nowadays it developed as institute of the Middle East. The Institute closely cooperates in its work with the official Russian establishments and departments involved in dealing with the Middle Eastern problems as well as with the higher school institutions, scientific and research centers and institutions of the Russian Academy of Sciences and the Russian Academy of Natural Sciences. The strategy of the Institute of the Middle East is worked out by the Council of Experts headed by Eu. Satanovsky, the President while the current work is administered by E. Zhigun, the Director.
Middle East Forum. The Middle East Forum promotes American interests in the Middle East and protects Western values from Middle Eastern threats. The Forum sees the region — with its profusion of dictatorships, radical ideologies, existential conflicts, border disagreements, corruption, political violence, and weapons of mass destruction — as a major source of problems for the United States. Accordingly, it urges active measures to protect Americans and their allies. U.S. interests in the Middle East include fighting radical Islam; working for Palestinian acceptance of Israel; robustly asserting U.S. interests vis-à-vis Saudi Arabia; developing strategies to deal with Iraq and contain Iran; and monitoring the advance of Islamism in Turkey.
Carnegie Middle East Center. The Carnegie Middle East Center is a recognized source of informed policy research and analysis on the challenges of political and socioeconomic development, peace, and security in the greater Middle East. It is a public policy think tank and research center based in Beirut, Lebanon. It was established in November 2006 by the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. The Middle East Center draws on the successful experience of Carnegie’s Moscow Center, established in 1994, and also runs parallel to new Carnegie initiatives in Beijing and Brussels.
LSE Middle East Center. The mission of the Middle East Centre is to enhance understanding and develop rigorous research and teaching on the societies, economies, polities, and international relations of the region. The Centre promotes both specialized knowledge and public understanding of this crucial area and has outstanding strengths in inter-disciplinary and social science research, combined with real regional expertise, and a genuine ability to inform policy-makers and public alike.
Oxford Research Group. The Oxford Research Group (ORG) is a leading independent think-tank that has been influential for 30 years in pioneering the idea of sustainable approaches to security as an alternative to violent global confrontation, through original research, wide-ranging dialogue, and practical policy recommendations.

In addition to MECW, CMES is host to several research projects with external financial support such as Student Mobility in Asia.
Middle East Research and Information Project. The Middle East Research and Information Project (MERIP) was established in 1971. The original conception of MERIP was to provide information and analysis on the Middle East that would be picked up by the existing media. Middle East Report under the MERIP provides news and perspectives about the Middle East not available from mainstream news sources. The magazine has developed a reputation for independent analysis of events and developments in the Middle East.
Middle East Monitor. We provide a focused and comprehensive coverage of Palestine, and it’s regional neighbours. We do so by gathering news through our extensive networks of partner organisations and correspondents on the ground. Not only do our readers enjoy up-to-date reporting, through our network of contributors, we also publish carefully reasoned commentaries rooted in factual evidence. We are also an essential point of reference for journalists, researchers, human rights organisations and NGOs.
