SI#18 - Understanding & Analyzing The Challenges In The MENA Region
A podcast series by Strategy International
On this episode we’re thrilled to have Dr. Elie Abouaoun, Director of North Africa Programs & Regional Hub for the United States Institute for Peace. We discuss what USIP is and the important work it does. We then go into detail on certain regional challenges and how they’ve affected local societies as well as global relations.
Dr. Abouaoun joined USIP after serving as the executive director of the Arab Human Rights Fund. Prior to being the acting country director and program manager of the Danish Refugee Council in Iraq, Dr. Abouaoun managed humanitarian, human rights, and development projects in the MENA region. He serves as a senior trainer and consultant for various international organizations since 1996, including the Council of Europe. He was appointed a member of the Reference Group, established by the Directorate of Education-Council of Europe (2001), to supervise the drafting of COMPASS, a manual for human rights education. He later supervised the manual’s adaptation and translation into Arabic to be distributed throughout the MENA region.
