An Update from the Center for Global Policy

PUBLISHED August 8, 2017

We are also delighted to announce that renowned Professor of Politics at Princeton University, Amaney Jamal, has joined the ranks of CGP’s senior fellows. Together with the Pew Research Center, Amaney Jamal, Farid Senzai (CGP’s President), and CGP Senior Fellow, Zareena Grewal (Associate Professor at Yale University) just completed a report on a landmark 2017 Pew survey of U.S. Muslims: U.S. Muslims Concerned About Their Place in Society, but Continue to Believe in the American Dream. You can download the full report or read our summary of key findings on the CGP website.

Also worthy of note is CGP’s most recent podcast with the dynamic Dr. Sahar Aziz, Professor of Law, and Middle East and Legal Studies Scholar at Rutgers University. In this podcast, Sahar discusses transnational counterterrorism and challenges the US to look carefully at how our work with authoritarian regimes has created a shift toward authoritarian ideas in the West. For this and more on CGP’s latest policy offerings, I invite you to peruse our website at

Warm regards,
