AboutMalcolm H. Kerr Carnegie Middle East Center

Founded in 2006, the Malcolm H. Kerr Carnegie Middle East Center, based in Beirut, Lebanon, draws on top regional experts to provide in-depth analysis of political, socioeconomic, and security issues in the Middle East and North Africa. The center seeks to cultivate a deeper understanding of the region by offering insights into the challenges faced by states and citizens and by addressing long-term trends. As freedom of expression has been increasingly curbed, the center has served as a space for individuals to express their views on the region and reflect on solutions.

Our Priorities

Governance, Economies, and Freedoms

Examination of the impacts of declining oil prices, popular uprisings, and the collapse of Middle Eastern and North African rentier economies and authoritarian systems—particularly what this means for governance, economies, and society.

Conflict and Border Relations

In-depth analysis of the internal conflicts, external interventions, and human loss and displacement that are shaping the region, with an emphasis on border areas and state relationships.

Religion, Identity, and Politics

Assessment of the roles of religious, tribal, and ethnic groups in shaping the region’s social fabric for centuries, how the roles have evolved to respond to new challenges, and the repercussions.

Civil-Military Relations

Large program on civil-military relations in Arab states; it aims to build expertise in defense affairs, enable civil-military dialogue, and foster defense-sector oversight—with the ultimate goal of developing policies that support the modernization and professionalization of Arab militaries.

Multipolar Regional Order

Survey of the effects of regional and international powers that are competing for political, economic, and societal influence in the region.
