Malcolm H. Kerr Carnegie Middle East Center is an independent research institute based in Beirut, Lebanon, that is part of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. Drawing on the knowledge of our top regional experts, Malcolm H. Kerr provides in-depth analysis of political, socio-economic, and security issues in the Middle East and North Africa. It seeks to cultivate a deeper understanding of the region by offering insights into the challenges faced by states and citizens, and by addressing long-term trends. As freedom of expression has been increasingly curbed, Malcolm H. Kerr has served as a space for individuals to express their views on the region and reflect on potential solutions.
As a partner in the XCEPT programme’s X-Border Local Research Network, Malcolm H. Kerr conducts research in the borderlands of Algeria, Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Syria, Tunisia, and Yemen. A primary focus of this research is to assess how internal conflicts, external intervention, and human loss and displacement are shaping border areas in the Middle East and North African border areas.
