What We Offer
Insight: Now, more than ever, understanding public opinion in the Muslim world is critical for governments, companies and non-profits. Not only is QGS based in one of the most economically and politically important majority-Muslim countries, we have analyzed data from Saudi Arabia to Bangladesh. We've travelled to Islamabad to work with Pashtuns from FATA, to Harare to design a focus group project in a failed state and to Sana'a to watch pretests in the homes of Yemeni women. We managed some of the first qualitative projects in Libya and Djibouti. In addition to the Muslim world, our particular expertise lies in the Caucasus, Central Asia and other parts of the former Soviet Union. We also work in Africa and Asia.
Analysis: We won't just tell you where you or your clients stand now, we'll tell you how to get where you want to go, using language you understand. Full quantitative or qualitative analysis, strategic memos, press releases or op-eds revealing your data -- we can do it all. Our writing is clear, concise and well-informed.
Oversight: Whether it's a quantitative, qualitative or campaign project, we'll make sure the local vendor is collecting your data in the most methodologically sound manner possible. We'll monitor your recruit, observe your focus groups, train your local moderators and trouble-shoot for you on the ground.
Training: If you're building quantitative or qualitative capacity or want to expose your local partner to the intricacies of western-style strategic research, we can put together an engaging, informative training session. We've trained hundreds of Iraqis, Djiboutians, Libyans, Ukrainians, Rwandans and Azerbaijanis on these topics as well as on general political strategy.
