Personnel Files: Middle East expert Randa Slim joins New America

The New America Foundation has announced that Randa Slim will join its National Security Studies Program as a Middle East adjunct fellow.

“In order to promote new ideas and encourage comprehensive analysis, we always need fresh and informed perspectives,” said National Security Studies Program director Peter Bergen, in a released statement. He added: “We are excited to have Randa as part of our team at such a crucial time, and look forward to her insight going forward.”

Slim’s previous affiliations include International Institute for Sustained Dialogue, the Rockefeller Brothers Fund, and the United States Institute of Peace, among others.

Since 2001, Slim has developed and managed several Track II diplomatic activities in the Middle East including an Iraqi national reconciliation dialogue involving Iraqi parliamentarians, tribal leaders and representatives of Iraqi opposition groups.
