The Middle East Scientific Institute for Security (MESIS) is an independent, non-governmental, non-profit organization, based in Amman, Jordan, that works across the Middle East to address Chemical, Biological, Radiological, and Nuclear (CBRN) risks.
With a core mission of mitigating CBRN risks in a region facing regular unrest, MESIS advocates a networked approach to foster robust partnerships and collaborations in the face of the threats of an ever-changing security landscape.
MESIS believes that a deep understanding of culture is essential for developing successful approaches to reducing threats. MESIS designs and implements culturally-relevant, engaging, and sustainable capacity building programs in addition to being a driver for policymaking and legislation development in areas related to CBRN risk mitigation.
MESIS is a space for sharing knowledge, ideas, and expertise across borders and disciplines, with a firm belief that a mindset of security is best embedded into institutions, not bolted on.
