After a first phase (2011-2013) that enabled to produce several studies and debates centered in particular around the Maghreb, the Middle East and Africa, the partnership between Ifri and the Policy Center for the New South aims to ''broaden the spectrum of research work to other regional and / or cross-cutting themes. This partnership is based on two pillars, studies and conferences, and calls on the various research units of Ifri, as well as associated researchers.
