The Institute for Research Middle Eastern Policy (IRmep) is a Washington-based nonprofit organization that studies US-Middle East policy formulation.
Founded in 2002, the Institute became an independent private non-profit tax-exempt organization in 2003.
IRmep's Center for Policy & Law Enforcement files Freedom of Information Act lawsuits to create warranted transparency and reveal the functions of government. It also examines how balanced and vigorous law enforcement can improve trade, economic development and America's international standing.
IRmep's Israel Lobby Archive documents and exposes little known initiatives, providing citizen access to behind-the-scenes activities of one of the most harmful forces driving policy formulation in the US political process.
Annual conferences educate thousands of Americans about factors that continue to produce tragic failures in regional policymaking.
