Muftah –
Muftah represents a new voice in Middle East and North Africa (MENA) policy making. In Arabic, the term “muftah” signifies an “opening” or “something which opens”, and is most frequently used to refer to a key. For the founders of Muftah, the “key” to crafting effective U.S. foreign policy towards MENA is understanding the region from within, and not exclusively in terms of U.S. interests.

Project on Middle East Democracy

The Project on Middle East Democracy is a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization dedicated to examining how genuine democracies can develop in the Middle East and how the U.S. can best support that process. Through dialogue, research, and advocacy, we aim to strengthen the constituency for U.S. policies that peacefully support democratic reform in the Middle East.
