20 June 2016 / Events The Implosion of Order in the Middle East
As events unfold, the role of Kurds in Iraq and Syria is becoming irrefutable. Kurds are now a greater player in shaping the political and social mosaic of the Middle East. And as the fertility rate among the Kurds is among the highest in the Middle East, they will inevitably have a greater political role to play in the region.
9 June 2016 / Events Mark Your Agenda for MERI Forum 25-27 October 2016
The 2016 annual MERI Forum follows on from the success of our 2014 and 2015 forums, which brought together decision-makers, academics and opinion-leaders to discuss a range of social, economic, and political issues. This year we aim to debate and analyse many of the core issues that are affecting the region today. Thus, the forum will revolve heavily around themes linked to the Islamic State, the economic and political crises, as well as the ever-changing regional power dynamics.
The Middle East Research Institute (MERI) is an independent, not-for-profit organisation, focused on policy issues relating to the people, the land and the system of governance in the Middle East in general, and Kurdistan and Iraq in particular. It is based in Erbil, Kurdistan Region of Iraq.
