2021-2022 Non-Resident Fellows

“It was a privilege to host such a diverse and dynamic group of fellows who worked on a wide range of issues from Morocco to Yemen. Their varied outputs – from policy briefs to podcasts - reflect their energy and their desire to engage with a broader audience.”

- Nadim Houry, Executive Director
