Analysis Reports

Analysis reports are long-form articles that give contributors the opportunity to develop the context of their research, approach and methodology. They can provide an in-depth analysis of the qualitative and quantitative data they collected on one specific aspect of European action in the MENA region. Contributors should also outline specific policy proposals, which arise from the results of their research.
