The Washington Institute for Near East Policy (WINEP) was established in 1985 to advance a balanced and realistic understanding of American interests in the Middle East. When WINEP decided to launch an Arabic portal, they turned to Matrix Group for help because of our experience working with other research organizations and implementing content management systems; multi-lingual capabilities; and user-focused design process.
