The Policy & Advocacy Center publishes our “Voice of MENA2050”, which reaches the top decision-makers and influencers in the region and beyond, to drive and monitor the implementation of our proposals.
We will sometimes drive our policies and project proposals as a concept. In some cases, we may also decide to take responsibility for a specific project and build a specially dedicated team around it, with dedicated budgets and “business-like” supervision.
