Sudanese-born researcher Omer al-Turabi stewards the editing of the Center’s “Monthly Book.”
While pursuing his BA at the University of Sharjah (UAE), he served as editor-in-chief of its official student magazine. He went on to hold a fellowship at the Ittihad Studies and Research Center in Dubai.
In addition to his editorial work at Al-Mesbar, Turabi also contributes scholarship of his own. Among his recent monographs, one concerned Islamist movements’ use of women and children in their violent campaigns. Another provided a historical overview of Sufism in Sudan.
Turabi writes a weekly column for the Sudanese newspaper Al-Sahafa.
