We wish to express our sincere gratitude to him for his perseverance, continuous efforts, careful scholarship, great contributions, distinct involvement and professionalism during his work within the Al Jazeera Centre, first as a writer from London, and later as a senior researcher in the Research and Studies Department. History will record his contributions which have played a significant role in establishing the major building blocks for the Centre’s development.
