Policy Brief - Middle East Initiative

2021 MEI Research Fellow Policy Briefs

Each year, the Emirates Leadership Initiative at Harvard Kennedy School makes it possible for the Middle East Initiative to host six early-career social scientists working on issues of urgent policy relevance in the broad areas of governance, economic development, national security, and inter-national relations in the Middle East and North Africa. This publication contains brief overviews of the research conducted by the 2020-21 cohort of Emirates Leadership Initiative Research Fellows, spanning such diverse topics as grassroots democracy-building in Tunisia, prejudice reduction in Israel and Palestine, and security provision in Lebanon.
