MENA Stability Reports and Studies

For more than two decades, the Burke Chair in Strategy has reported on the underlying causes of stability and instability in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region

The following reports are a selection of the Burke Chair’s most prolific works, and attempt to create a holistic assessment of a region that has been at risk of instability for many years. Within these reports, you will find a collection of demographic, economic, political, and security assessments. These assessments are corroborated with a collection of surveys, charts, and graphs that are grounded in decades of research.
