(Washington, D.C.) – The Project on Middle East Democracy (POMED) is pleased to announce Andrew Miller as POMED’s new Deputy Director for Policy.
Andrew has nearly a decade of experience working on the Middle East for the U.S. Government and has conducted extensive research on multiple countries in the region. From 2014 to 2017, Andrew served as the Director for Egypt and Israel Military Issues on the National Security Council (NSC), where he was responsible for coordinating U.S. policy towards these countries.
While at the NSC, Andrew was deeply involved in the Obama Administration’s efforts to modernize U.S. military assistance to Egypt and participated as a member of the U.S. delegation that negotiated a new 10-year Memorandum of Understanding on security assistance to Israel. He also worked at the Department of State in a variety of policy and analytical roles related to the Middle East, serving in the Bureau of Intelligence and Research, on the Secretary of State’s Policy Planning Staff, and at the U.S. embassies in Doha and Cairo. He earned a B.A. in Political Science from Dickinson College and an M.A. in Foreign Affairs from the University of Virginia.
“We are very excited to have Andrew joining POMED’s team to lead our advocacy efforts here in Washington,” said POMED Executive Director Stephen McInerney. “His wealth of experience working on U.S. policy at the White House and the Department of State will strengthen our efforts to press for policies that advance democratic values in the Middle East and North Africa.”
