Nisar MajidVisiting Fellow

Nisar Majid has been working in the development and humanitarian fields for over fifteen years. This has primarily been in the Horn of Africa where he has a special interest in the Somali regions and peoples.

Nisar Majid’s initial working experience was in food security and livelihoods analysis and training, frequently within the early warning/information systems of Ethiopia, Somalia and Kenya. He has also participated in a number of technical and organizational reviews and evaluations. In 2013 he completed his PhD, which explored the agency of Somali ‘diaspora’ members, through the various organizations and technologies – NGOs, informal networks, a mosque and community center, a website and mobile telephony – they utilize in order to pursue their developmental and political goals, in the UK and in the Somali territories. Nisar is currently working closely with the FIC on an 18-month study investigating the lessons learned from the recent ‘crisis’ in the Horn of Africa.
