The Tahrir Institute for Middle East Policy (TIMEP) is dedicated to influencing policy toward advancing the rule of law, democracy, economic development, and peace and security in the Middle East and North Africa, through rigorous research and targeted advocacy efforts that promote local voices.

TIMEP was founded in 2013 and currently has offices in DC and Brussels, with a network of expert fellows located throughout the world. TIMEP is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit in the District of Columbia.


Our Approach: The Triple-A Model


Our research approach is uniquely based on original and ongoing projects with tailored methodologies, and uses research findings as the foundations of its expert analysis. All of TIMEP’s research is rooted in thorough and systematic documentation, as we recognize the need to establish a long-term view to identify trends.





TIMEP uses its research findings and analysis to develop targeted advocacy strategies rooted in the principle that security, human rights, rule of law, and economic prosperity go hand in hand. TIMEP monitors developments in the policymaking landscape in the U.S., Europe, and elsewhere; identifies key stakeholders on relevant policies; and delivers our findings and recommendations to them directly.




TIMEP is further committed to bringing local voices directly into policy discussions. We do so by offering diverse, collaborative partnerships including fellowships and internships, training opportunities, and network building. In addition, all work produced is conducted in close collaboration with local analysts, researchers, journalists, civil society actors, and lawyers.
