Prior to his work at FHI 360, Dr. Sany advised international organizations and development agencies including MINUSTAH and the ECCAS on peacebuilding and development strategies. 

Dr. Sany has researched, taught peacebuilding courses, and published scholarly articles on peacekeeping, peacebuilding, and civil society, including the book, “Reintegration of Ex-Combatants: A Balancing Act.” He currently writes about African development and politics in the blog African Praxis. He holds a doctorate in public policy and a master's in conflict analysis and resolution from George Mason University.
