Welcome to Mikhael Advisory:
I am committed to working with you to deliver the highest quality consulting, research and facilitation service to you and your organisation.
My academic expertise, includes my PhD, obtained in 2014 and research Fellowships at Durham University (2015-2017) and Queen’s University Belfast (2018-2020). I continue produce academic material in my areas of expertise: conflict resolution, ethnic violence, political mobilisation, exclusion, young people, violent extremism, Middle East and East African politics
Alongside my academic engagement I have provided consulting services since 2009 to both large international clients and grassroots groups across the world. During my consulting practice I have designed and carryed out bespoke research projects in conflict areas, written successful grants, programming evaluation, designed and facilitated peer-to-peer international knowledge exchange workshops. My consulting experience has been broad, working on the issues of human rights, refugee policies, youth exclusion, tackling radicalisation, corruption/transparency, conflict management, reconciliation, security sector and educational reform.
I have 18 years of facilitation experience having designed and delivered training programs to range of clients across Europe, Africa and the Middle East with at risk young people and adults as well as corporate and non-profit organisations. Key areas have included: research design, mediation, developing an organisational strategic vision and better management of well-being.
Alongside my professional practice I endeavour to increase public knowledge of the key issues in which I work, which results in my regular participation in local, regional and international media outlets as an expert. Additional dissemination includes participation in practitioner and academic conferences to contribute to and increase my own knowledge of relevant subject fields.
