Founded in 1948, the Middle East Institute is one of the older regional studies institutes in Washington, which has received funding from Saudi Arabia although it started from academic roots. It began as a group at the School of Advanced International Studies, Johns Hopkins University, and made an independent organization by the academic George Camp Keiser and former U.S. Secretary of State Christian Herter. Former U.S. Ambassador to Saudi Arabia Wyche Fowler is the Chairman of the Institute, and retired career diplomat Wendy Chamberlin is the President.

It houses a large library, publishes the Middle Each Journal (available by subscription or JSTOR) and Middle East Bulletin, which is downloadable.

In addition to its research programs, it conducts an accredited language program in Arabic, Hebrew, Persian and Turkish language classes, and seminars focusing on the history and culture of the Middle East.
