EU-LDC Regions - Middle East/North Africa - Description/Local Institutions


The Economic Research Forum (ERF), Cairo, Egypt

ERF was established in 1993 in order to help improve the quality and increase the quantity of applied policy-oriented economic research on the Arab Region, Turkey and Iran. It is an independent, non-government, non-profit organisation, which provides a platform for a wide range of views.

The mission of ERF is to initiate and fund policy-relevant economic research, to publish and disseminate the results of research activity to scholars, policymakers, and the business community, and to function as a resource base for researchers through its databank and documentation library.

ERF undertakes activities in the following areas:

  • Research, ERF does not conduct research in-house but, rather, acts as a research network, clearing-house, and facilitator. ERF initiates joint research programs with other specialised institutions, co-ordinates comparative cross-country research, and provides assistance in accessing data and information.
  • Conferences and workshops, ERF organises or co-sponsors conferences and meetings in the MENA region.
  • Publications, ERF publishes a newsletter (with articles, digests of research and book reviews), working papers, books on all ERF sponsored workshops and conferences, and its Regional Indicators Report (with forecasts of trends, sectoral developments and business climate).
  • Networks, associated networks of ERF are FEMISE (analysis of the Euro-Mediterranean partnerships) and the Global Development Network (GDN).
  • Resources, the Data, Documentation, and Reference Library at ERF provides a wide selection of research material.
