We are a team of all sorts, encompassing all ages and different specialties, made up of top-notch research gurus in the Arab world. The Team has a combined experience of around 75 years in the field of data collection, quantitative and qualitative baseline and special studies, evaluations, observations, focus groups, and interviews.
