A research, analysis and dialogue institution, “Maison du Futur” (MDF) explores viable alternative futures for the Middle East and Arab world, including Lebanon. Founded in 1975 by President Amine Gemayel, MDF has been called “one of the most venerable think tanks in the Middle East.” It recognizes the urgent need for conflict management in today’s turbulent Middle East. At the same time, MDF’s perspective transcends current crises by identifying the requirements of a stable postwar regional order and addressing essential priorities through its flagship initiative, the Arab Marshall Plan.
