MISSION STATEMENT

Established in 2005, the Project on Middle East Democracy (POMED) is a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization dedicated to examining how genuine democracies can develop in the Middle East and how the United States can best support that process.

Through advocacy, research, and partnerships with regional civil society organizations and advocates, POMED seeks to empower and support the citizens of the Middle East and North Africa in pursuit of their legitimate aspirations for greater democratic rights.
