Issam Fares Institute For Public Policy And International Affairs
The Issam Fares Institute for Public Policy and International Affairs (IFI) at the American University of Beirut (AUB) was inaugurated in 2006 to harness the policy-related research of AUB's internationally respected faculty and other scholars, in order to contribute positively to Arab policy-making and international relations.
IFI is a neutral, dynamic, civil, and open space that brings together people representing all viewpoints in society.
It aims to: raise the quality of public policy-related debate and decision-making in the Arab world and abroad; enhance the Arab world's input into international affairs; and, enrich the quality of interaction among scholars, officials and civil society actors in the Middle East and abroad.
