Ifri's work on the North America region focuses mainly on the United States. Indeed, for more than 20 years, Ifri's United States program has provided keys to understanding American society and domestic policy while shedding light on developments in the country's foreign policy, including transatlantic relations and trade issues. 

Ifri's Canada program was active in 2015 and 2016.
