Dr. Ahmed Rhazaoui

Dr. Ahmed Rhazaoui was the senior visiting scholar in Global Studies for the spring 2015 semester. A 30+ year veteran of the United Nations Development Program, Rhazaoui joined the UNDP in the late 1980s to work in the field on development challenges as deputy, then as resident representative and UN coordinator. In that capacity, he led the UNDP teams in Guinea, Niger, Rwanda, Cameroon, Senegal and Syria, with shorter stints in Chad, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Mali and Tunisia. In 2004, he was appointed as director of the UN Office for West Africa and deputy special representative of the secretary general. Among the highlights of his career was the lead role in coordinating the work of the UN for the reconstruction of Rwanda in the immediate aftermath of the 1994 genocide. In fall 2014, he worked for the UN with Syrian refugees in Jordan and Lebanon. He holds a PhD in political science and economics from New York University.
