Analysing Trends Likely to Affect the MENA Region over the Next Decade

Millions of column inches have been written in an effort to decode, understand and forecast the dynamics of the Middle East and North Africa. In 2019, we were commissioned by the implementation arm of a prominent European family office to advise their board on trends likely to affect the region over the coming decade.

We conducted extensive literature reviews and interviewed researchers, practitioners and former states-people to decode the trajectory of the region on issues including governance, geopolitics and securitisation; economic, social and human development trends; and resources and the environment. Our report covered 20 sub-topics and culminated in strategic recommendations to the board.
