WASHINGTON, DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA

In a time of increasing unpredictability in U.S. foreign policy as well as in relationships in the Middle East, the role of think tanks in the policy space has come into question. In light of an apparent U.S. withdrawal from the region, how can think tanks remain relevant and effective in their policy work? Conversely, how can think tanks in the region continue to promote objective analysis and dialogue in light of increasingly tense diplomatic relationships?
The Middle East Institute (MEI) is pleased to host a panel of think tank leaders to discuss the ways in which think tanks can anticipate the long-term trends impacting the region’s future.
This event will be held in conjunction with Jim McGann’s Think Tanks and Civil Societies Program. Earlier that same day, the Think Tanks and Civil Societies Program at the University of Pennsylvania will release its 2018 rankings of think tanks. This annual report is the industry standard and rates 6,800 think tanks throughout the world, including the 1,835 think tanks in the United States alone.
