POMED nonresident fellows are leading experts on politics, governance, human rights, and civil society in the MENA region and Turkey who have part-time roles with POMED while they maintain their primary professional affiliations outside the organization. Supplementing and amplifying the work of POMED’s resident staff, POMED fellows research and write publications, engage with the media, participate in events, and contribute to the intellectual life of the organization.

In addition, POMED occasionally hosts resident fellows for stints of several weeks to several months at our office in Washington, D.C.  We provide such fellows with a “home base” for their research in Washington and introduce them to contacts. (Please note that these are not paid positions and that POMED typically is not able to cover resident fellows’ living expenses or salaries.)

If you are interested in learning more about POMED’s nonresident and resident fellows programs, please contact Deputy Director for Research Amy Hawthorne.
