Biography

Dr. Sarah J. Feuer is the Rosenbloom Family Fellow in the Washington Institute's Geduld Program on Arab Politics. Her 2018 book, Regulating Islam: Religion and the State in Contemporary Morocco and Tunisia, was published by Cambridge University Press. An expert on politics and religion across North Africa, Feuer was previously a senior fellow and a Soref fellow at the Institute, where she authored numerous policy papers and monographs covering developments across the Maghreb and religion-state dynamics in the Arab world more generally. Her 2019 study, Course Correction: The Muslim World League, Saudi Arabia's Export of Islam, and Implications for U.S. Policy, examined the shifting contours of Saudi religious export in recent years. Feuer currently lives in Tel Aviv, where she is a research fellow at Tel Aviv University's Institute for National Security Studies.
