Geopolitical & Expert Briefings

There is no denying that the Middle East sits in the centre of a geopolitically complex, and at times tense, region.

A visit to the Middle East can be an opportunity to delve beyond the headlines and gain deeper context and understanding for the reasons behind the region’s conflicts, the different and competing narratives, and how they impact day-to-day life.  In North Africa, you are invited to delve deeply into alternative political and social arrangements, such as constitutional monarchies.

Many of our guests benefit from our Speaker’s Bureau, meeting with experts for private briefings.  For clients who want to go beyond the obvious, we frequently arrange such briefings by in-the-know journalists, think tank people, those who hold or have held public office, and academics.

We also offer a range of geo-politically focused tours allowing you to get out into the field, and form your own views of some of the region’s most complex and controversial issues.
