Policy Center for the New South

Mission and objectives

The Policy Center for the New South is a Moroccan policy-oriented think tank striving to promote knowledge sharing and to contribute to an enriched reflection on key economic and international relations issues. By offering a southern perspective on major regional and global strategic challenges facing developing and emerging countries, the  Policy Center for the New South aims to provide a meaningful policymaking contribution through its four research programs: Agriculture, Environment and Food Security, Economic and Social Development, Commodity Economics and Finance, Geopolitics and International Relations.

On this basis, Policy Center for the New South is actively engaged in public policy analysis and consultation while promoting international cooperation for the development of countries in the southern hemisphere. In this regard, the Policy Center for the New South aims to be an incubator of ideas and a source of forward thinking for proposed actions on public policies within emerging economies, and more broadly for all stakeholders engaged in the national and regional growth and development process. For this purpose, the think tank relies on independent research and a solid network of internal and external leading research fellows.

Policy Center for the New South, as a think tank, is very committed to Mediterranean issues. This commitment is translated into the co-hosting of the Mediterranean Strategy Group, the analytical contribution to the Mediterranean Dialogues 2016 and the numerous papers published on subjects related to Mediterranean issues.
