Civic Engagement


MEI researchers and other staff are often asked to take part in conferences, public debates, parliamentary committees, and other types of events. Their participation helps inform public policy debates on the basis of rigorous, factual, non-partisan research.

The MEI offers any organization or association, or any political party, the opportunity to draw on the skills of its staff, at no charge. They can be called upon to act as speakers, debate participants, hosts, or moderators, as long as these requests correspond to the Institute’s areas of expertise. In this way, the MEI hopes to support initiatives that contribute to civic engagement and to the dynamism of public debates in a healthy democracy.

For more information on staff availability, please contact our Vice President Jasmin Guenette at:
