Fadi Nicholas Nassar holds a PhD from the War Studies Department at King's College in London. His thesis examined the decision-making of the UN's mediation efforts in Syria, offering a detailed account of the policies and strategies of Kofi Annan, Lakhdar Brahimi, and Staffan de Mistura in Syria as well as a new method to pinpoint the agency of UN mediators in such sensitive and often clouded positions. In conjunction with his academic research, he was a visiting fellow at Sciences Po Paris and a doctoral fellow at the Geneva Centre for Security Policy. At different capacities, he has worked with the United Nations Development Programme in Lebanon as well as in Peru, the Holy See’s Mission to the United Nations in Geneva, and the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace in Lebanon.
