About us

The activities of International institute IFIMES are especially directed towards the areas of international (foreign) politics and economy, international relations, counseling the governments, state institutions as well as the non-state actors such as the academia and corporate entities. IFIMES is specialized in dealing with the complex situations in the Balkans as well as in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA). IFIMES gathers and selects various information and sources on key conflict areas in the world. The Institute analyses mutual relations among parties with an aim to promote the importance of reconciliation, early prevention/preventive diplomacy and disarmament/ confidence building measures in the regional or global conflict resolution of the existing conflicts and the role of preventive actions against new global disputes.
