About us

The Moroccan Institute of Strategic Intelligence (IMIS) is a general think tank dedicated to the study of Morocco’s strategic stakes and the decoding of the complex positioning of actors in its continental environment. The Institute, based in Rabat, is the result of a dynamic lunched in 2007 with the Moroccan Association of Economic Intelligence (AMIE) and its migration to the AMIE Center for Policy. These two structures have established themselves as the continent benchmark for practitioners of strategic intelligence and as a driving force in the production of strategic doctrine through two major works: “A Moroccan ambition” and “Strategic Morocco”.


Morocco: 2020-2030, the rise in power?

The Kingdom must find the paths that will lead it to a more sustained, inclusive and globally ambitious development over the next ten years, under penalty of increasing pressure from its present model.

Roadmap for a national approach to economic intelligence

The “Roadmap for a National Economic Intelligence Strategy”, published in 2013, has been developed by AMIE Center.

The stated objective is the contribution to a substantial acceleration of the development of the Kingdom.

Strategic Morocco
