TIMEP’s Nonresident Fellowship program supports advocates, scholars, and analysts based on the ground in the MENA region or with significant ties to the region whose work advances the accountable, transparent, and just societies that TIMEP is committed to fostering.
TIMEP recruits many of its nonresident fellows in an annual cohort, creating a unique opportunity for cross-regional learning and connectivity. Throughout the one year program, each TIMEP nonresident fellow will have a thematic and/or country-focused mandate. Fellows will produce solutions-oriented and policy-relevant analysis on the top issues affecting their mandate; access personalized skills-building opportunities, particularly focused on the policy and media spaces; connect and collaborate with like-minded organizations and individuals; and share their knowledge and analysis with stakeholders through media, advocacy, and convening opportunities. While the program welcomes talent across backgrounds and experiences, it particularly invests in early and mid-career voices. TIMEP’s nonresident fellows actively shape the policy discourse and paving the way for a nuanced understanding of the MENA region.
TIMEP’s 2022-2023 Nonresident Fellowship cohort consists of a dynamic group of advocates based in countries around the world, who bring expertise on a variety of thematic areas and countries across the region:
- Muhsen AlMustafa: Security, Military, and Governance (Syria)
