ABOUT THE INSTITUTE
The Abraham Accords Peace Institute is a non-partisan, U.S.-based, non-profit organization dedicated to supporting the implementation and expansion of these historic peace agreements. The mission of the Institute is to strengthen the new bonds created through the Abraham Accords and ensure that these relationships achieve their fullest potential.
The Accords’ first year success continues to highlight to potential future signatories not only the possibility of such advances, but the necessity of such for their own economic prosperity and the stability of the region. The Institute is the primary platform for disseminating the progress made through the Accords and the development of new opportunities for growth by convening and leveraging both public and private sector entities and organizations for discussion, planning, and cooperation.
Providing leadership toward a measurable increase in connectivity and prosperity among Abraham Accords members, the Institute works to further enable bilateral and multilateral economic and cultural progress and opportunity by demonstrating private-sector investment and tangible U.S. commitment to bridge business-to-government obstacles and focus resources to address critical gaps to sustain and expand ties.
In close partnership with all public and private sector entities engaged in advancing the Accords, the Institute partners with all who seek to further the relationships among its members, and build bridges between public and private efforts working to establish the required bilateral foundations, which will make multilateral solutions possible.
Maps of the Middle East have historically depicted the region as the center of the world’s trade. For decades, this ancient leg of the Silk Road facilitating trade, economic, cultural, political, and religious links between East and West was severed due to political disagreements and a culture of distrust that threatened regional economic development and international peace and security. The Abraham Accords, and the new connections which are now possible as a result, provide an unprecedented opportunity to reorient market access and global transportation hubs enabling improved efficiency and the establishment of trusted supply chains on terms favorable to the United States and its partners.Impact
