The international ranking, “Global Go To Think Tank 2016” published by the University of Pennsylvania, has reaffirmed, since 2011, the ranking of the Amadeus Institute among the most influential think tanks. Moreover, The MEDays Forum is classified in the TOP 85 of the “Best Think Tank Network” in the world. In fact, the Amadeus Institute is the only Moroccan think tank featured on this list.

This classification confirms the efforts and credibility of the Amadeus Institute which, thanks to its prestigious international network, is able to promote the image of Morocco and its values. The expertise of the Amadeus Institute is also appreciated on the international level. The Institute has been a major stakeholder in many events such as the Special Visit Program in Melbourne in 2010, the Seminar on Peace and Development in Africa in Beijing in 2010, the Conference on the prevention of causes of conflicts in Nairobi in 2010, the Sustainable Development Summit in New Delhi in 2011, the New York Forum in 2011 and 2012, the Gulf Strategic Conference in Manama in 2013, Bamako Forum in 2010, 2013, and 2014, the forum of CPAPD 2014 in Beijing, the Abu Dhabi Strategic Debates in 2014, the General Assembly of EuroMesco every year since 2011, the MENA think tank summit in Istanbul in 2015, the Crans Montana Forum in 2015, the BOAO Forum in China in 2015 and the Africa CEO Forum in Geneva in 2015 and in Abidjan in 2016.

In 2009, the Amadeus Institute has also initiated and organized the first edition of the regional conference on “Governance and economic development” in Marrakech, an event which has witnessed the participation of North African and European officials, representatives of the United Nations System, representatives of social society and national and international academics. Strengthened by its international credibility, the Amadeus Institute receives more and more official delegations on work visits in Morocco.
