WHY WE’RE HERE

Sean Brooks

Special Advisor

Sean supported senior level policymakers at the State Department and USAID with a focus on peacemaking, peacekeeping, early recovery/stabilization, and countering violent extremism in Sudan and Somalia. For the last two years, Sean managed USAID’s flagship stabilization program operating across Somalia, primarily in areas recovered militarily from al-Shabaab, to build community-identified peace dividend infrastructure projects. With the State Department’s Somalia Unit he supported the nascent Federal Government of Somalia in developing and piloting national initiatives related to handling disengaged combatants, reviving traditional justice systems, and establishing local governance administrations. Sean also served as U.S. Senior Advisor for Darfur Dane Smith’s leading advisor and worked closely with U.S. Special Envoy for Sudan and South Sudan Princeton Lyman.
