Egyptian Eman Ragab has received a fellowship diploma from the NATO Defense College in Rome in the area of counterterrorism policies.

During the fellowship, Ragab worked on policy research focusing on NATO’s counterterrorism cooperation with Egypt and Tunisia in the light of the alliance’s Projecting Stability Policy.

She conducted more than 20 face-to-face interviews with officials from NATO, defence and foreign ministries in Tunisia and Egypt in order to freshly assess the level of counterterrorism cooperation and the challenges faced, and came up with policy recommendations.

The Commandant of the NATO Defense College Lieutenant General Chris Whitecross honoured Ragab and other Egyptian delegations taking part in the various courses organised at the college.

Ragab is a senior researcher in regional security and the head of military and security research unit at Al-Ahram Center for Political and Strategic Studies, as well as a visiting professor of political science at the American University in Cairo.

She is a graduate of the Faculty of Economics and Political Science at Cairo University (2004), and received M.A. and PhD. degrees from the same faculty (in 2009 and 2014 respectively).

She is also a graduate of the National Defense College at Nasser Academy for Military Sciences.

She has been honoured by the commander-in-chief of the armed forces and the ministers of defence and military production as a "distinguished civilian.”
