Farea Al-Muslimi is chairman and co-founder of Sanaa Center for Strategic Studies.
Before joining Chatham House, he worked at both Carnegie Middle East Center and the Middle East Institute in Washington, D.C. where his research and work focused on Yemen and Gulf.
Al-Muslimi’s writings and analysis on Yemen and the wider region have been published in Foreign Affairs, Foreign Policy, New York Times, The Independent, The Guardian, McClatchy, The National, Al-Hayyat, Assafir, Al-Monitor, and many other publications.
In 2013, Foreign Policy named Al-Muslimi in its list of 'Top 100 Global Thinkers', and in 2014 The Guardian named Al-Muslimi in its 'Top 30 under 30' list of young leaders in digital media around the world.
In August 2016, UN General Secretary appointed Al-Muslimi to the Advisory Group of Experts for Progress Study on Youth, Peace and Security, a study mandated by Security Council resolution 2250 to examine the positive contribution of youth to peace processes and conflict resolution and effective responses at local, national, regional and international levels.
