Bio

My interest in politics began in 1986, when I started to understand the development of civil war in Lebanon where I resided prior to moving to UAE. Currently, I am working with bhuth in managing employees documents as well as all the Center’s transactions with ministries and concerned institutions. Also, I play a key role in the Monitoring Team, in the process of following and extracting regional and international public and political news for research and analysis. Part of my work in the monitoring process includes looking at potential trends and news published through social network sites.

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.
