It's French, and it's spelled vis-à-vis. It means 1. Face to face with; opposite to. 2. Compared with. 3. In relation to. We most commonly use it in the sense of "with respect to." For example: The position of our organization vis-à-vis global warming is to support efforts to reduce carbon emissions.
