What is the Alma Research and Education Center

The Alma Research and Education Center is a non-profit and bipartisan organization with the mission of making in-depth geopolitical knowledge about the Middle East accessible to English speakers.

Alma’s research team, residing in Israel’s northern border communities, is uniquely equipped to combine professional expertise and background with a first-person perspective of how the conflict is affecting life near Israel’s borders. Alma’s work addresses the changing cultural climate and current trends in Muslim societies in light of other events in Israel’s neighbouring countries, while focusing on how they all impact the IDF’s security challenges along Israel’s volatile northern border.
