The GIGA currently operates one research platform in North Africa (Tunis) and one in the Middle East (Beirut). They bring together academics and practitioners from the Arab world and beyond and enable the GIGA and its partners to jointly address issues of particular relevance for the involved institutions and researchers. Together with the L’Observatoire Tunisien de la Transition Démocratique (OTTD) in Tunisia and the Lebanese American University (LAU) in Beirut, the GIGA organises activities to promote a common impact on the scientific and political arenas in the locations of the respective platforms – these consist of international conferences and workshops, research cooperation, and mutual research visits.
