EMERG was founded in 2012 by one of Europe’s leading networks of researchers and policy makers on the Middle East. We are a politically unaffiliated non-profit association registered in Sweden.

We welcome individuals working with the MENA region to join our association. Within our 'activities' section please find a post about EMERG Membership and/or please contact us via the "To inquire about EMERG Membership" button at the bottom left of this page.


Through research, training programs, exchanges and facilitation, EMERG aims to promote greater understanding and interaction between MENA and European Countries. We aim to support sustainable development and cooperation through close cooperation between stakeholders across sectors.


A strong relationship between European and MENA countries that fosters dialogue, mutual respect, and sustainable development.
