“It is incredibly overwhelming for my accomplishments in the field to be recognized by the premier conflict resolution school in the world, The School for Conflict Analysis and Resolution at George Mason University,” Sharqieh said. “I am wholeheartedly grateful for my professors who taught me conflict resolution and I do hope I have met their expectations.”

“On behalf of S-CAR I’d like to say how delighted we are that Ibrahim will receive this honor in recognition of his achievements and commitment to the growing field of conflict resolution. To say we are proud would be an understatement,” said Kevin Avruch, GMU Dean of the School for Conflict Analysis and Resolution. Avruch added, “This is very well-deserved and we look forward to Ibrahim officially receiving the award at the Celebration of Distinction.”

GU-Q Dean Gerd Nonneman said:  “At GU-Q we consider ourselves extremely fortunate to have distinguished colleagues such as Ibrahim Sharqieh as part of our community.  For Dr. Sharqieh to be honored in this way reflects the increasing international scope and impact of our research and programs at the Qatar campus.  Our best wishes go to Dr. Sharqieh as he receives this significant award.”

In addition to his post at Georgetown in Qatar, Sharqieh is a Foreign Policy Fellow at the Brookings Institution’s Doha Center.  Previously, he served as senior project director at The Academy for Educational Development (AED) where he managed international development projects in several Arab countries including Yemen and Qatar.  He was also an academic adviser to the Embassy of the United Arab Emirates in Washington, D.C.

Sharqieh is the author of “A Lasting Peace? Yemen’s Long Journey to National Reconciliation” and “Reconstructing Libya: Stability Through National Reconciliation.”  He has published extensively about conflict resolution in the MENA region and his articles have appeared in Foreign Affairs, Foreign Policy, The New York Times, the Financial Times, CNN, The Christian Science Monitor, The National Interest, the Philadelphia Inquirer, and Al Arabiya.

Sharqieh’s views on Middle East politics are quoted regularly by Reuters and the Associated Press, and he is a frequent commentator on news channels such as NPR, CNN, Al Jazeera (English and Arabic), and the BBC.
