POLITICAL OFFICER

NATASHA HALL

Natasha is a Political Officer with TSG. Natasha Hall has over fifteen years of experience as an analyst, researcher, and practitioner in complex humanitarian emergencies and conflict-affected areas working in over fifteen countries around the world. Since 2011, she has worked on the Syrian conflict with GIZ, Mayday Rescue, Center for Civilians in Conflict (CIVIC), and the US government’s Refugee Affairs Division. Her work has focused on conflict analysis and prevention as well as governance, resilience, and civilian self-protection strategies.

Her reports have spurred congressional hearings and high-level donor responses on Syria. As a director with Mayday Rescue, she led these responses, working with the White Helmets to reinforce critical civilian infrastructure and protect civilians from explosive weapons and other consequences of the war.
She is a commentator/contributor on the Syrian conflict and refugee issues for a number of media outlets and think tanks including CNN, BBC, and MSNBC. She has written articles and in-depth analyses for the Washington Post, Newsweek, US News and World Report, the Atlantic Council, the US Institute for Peace, and the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, amongst others.

Natasha is also the founder of Art in Exile, an organisation that creates a platform for refugee artists, filmmakers, and writers to showcase their work and tell their stories and explores art for catharsis and peacebuilding for those affected by war. Art in Exile events were listed in Top Ten things to do in DC by Time Out. She earned her Masters from Georgetown's School of Foreign Service and her BA from the University of Virginia in Foreign Affairs and Middle East Studies. She did a Fulbright Fellowship in Jordan from 2006-2007 and a Boren Fellowship in Syria in 2010.
