(27 June 2016). Two experts on public attitudes and media behavior in Iraq will examine changes in public opinion in that country, as well as ways people in Iraq get their news at the next First Monday Forum, 11 July 2016, at American Foreign Service Association in Washington, D.C.

Analyzing these issues are Diana Turecek, Director of Audience Research at Middle East Broadcast Networks, and Mohamed Younis, senior analyst for Middle East and North Africa at the Gallup Inc. Turecek joined Middle East Broadcast Networks in February 2012, after serving nearly four years as regional research manager for Middle East and Africa at InterMedia Survey Institute.

Younis is Gallup’s expert on the Middle East and North Africa, and also serves as a senior analyst for the Gallup World Poll. His research at Gallup focuses on employment challenges in the Arab world and relations between Muslim majority and Western societies. In addition, Younis leads a Gallup initiative on advanced analytics, integrating Gallup’s findings with external data sources.
