The AUB Issam Fares Institute for Public Policy and International Affairs (IFI) is delighted to welcome to the Institute two new fellows with expertise in economic policy and development. In response to the current situation in Lebanon and the region, the Institute is striving to expand its work on economic policies and on ways to tackle the multi-faced crises that the country is facing by conducting high quality research, as well as organizing pertinent debates and policy dialogues.
In this regard IFI welcomes Jamal Saghir

Through the fellowship program
, IFI aims to grow a network of policy influencers to strengthen its engagement with policymakers and to translate knowledge to practical policy recommendations. As such, our fellows form a critical link to a variety of policy issues and research programs at the institute.
