Bio

Mohammed Baharoon is the Director Genearl of b’huth, which he established with Ahmed Al Mansoori in 2002 in Dubai, UAE.

Mohammed Baharoon attained his master’s degree in English Literature from Texas Tech University in 1995 and his English Major from Kuwait University in 1987. Baharoon found reading literature helped him create the big picture since he always needed to listen to things that were not said. This led to a career in media where he worked as a reporter for Al Arabi Magazine, which was a premier cultural monthly in the Arab World.

Mohammed continued his media career as a writer for Al Ittihad newspaper and then as an Editor for Gulf Defence Magazine. A turning point for him was when he started to see that the worlds of literature and politics were not very different.

It was a launching point for the establishment of b’huth. Since then, Baharoon has been reading world politics as the ultimate literary genre where fact and fiction are two faces of the same coin.
