Nadwa Al-Dawsari - Sustainable Leadership Fellow from Yemen

New Yemeni Leadership Fellow will address tribal conflicts and other important challenges to Yemen's developing democracy

Nadwa Al Dawsari joins the Partners for Sustainable Leadership Program from Yemen. Nadwa is a dedicated professional with an impressive background tackling the problem of tribal conflicts in her country. She was most recently Senior Program Manager with the National Democratic Institute for International Affairs (NDI) in Yemen, where she worked directly with the national and local government as well as local civil society organizations to build sustainable systems to address the problem of tribal conflicts and revenge killings. She has previous experience in both gender issues and journalism, working previously with UNIFEM’s Post Beijing Operations Project, and with the Women’s Studies Center at Sana’a University and the Yemen Times newspaper. In what will hopefully be the one of many collaborations with other international fellowship programs, Nadwa came to Partners by way of her participation as a Fulbright-Humphrey Fellow at Rutgers University. The new Partners Center in Yemen plans to work on promoting local governance reforms, building the capacities of local civil society organizations and working with the Yemeni government, local authorities, tribal and community leaders, as well as local civil society organizations, to establish short-term and long-term interventions that address tribal conflicts in Yemen.
