Supported Initiatives

In Spring 2021, Fares Center Director Nadim N. Rouhana announced Fares Research Groups based at the Center. These groups will be focused on a country, area, or theme related to the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) and may engage in several academic activities, including but not limited to: conducting research, organizing speaker events, preparing publications, and creating a podcast. If desired, the Fares Center will match each study group with a faculty advisor from Fletcher, Tufts, the greater Boston area, or a university in the Middle East and North Africa.

The coordinators will act as Research Assistants based at Fares and will be responsible for leading the group and serving as the liaison between students and the Center. Groups may be formed for Spring 2021, Spring 2021-Fall 2021, or Academic Year 2021-2022. Students interested in the RA position should email The Fares Center or Rachel Carrillo for more details.

Fletcher School students interested in participating should include:

  • Resume or CV
  • Proposal of their study group , including rationale and envisioned activities (500 words)
  • Names of Group Members
  • Tentative Budget

Please email us with any questions. We look forward to receiving your applications!
