Tarik Yousef el-Magariaf is an economist who has worked as the chief executive of Silatech and as a member of the World Economic Forum's Global Agenda Council on the Arab World. He specialises in economies of the Arab world.
Between 1998 and 2006, Yousef worked at Georgetown University, where he was Assistant Professor of Economics in the Edmund Walsh School of Foreign Service and Sheikh Al Salem Al Sabah Professor of Arab Studies at the Center for Contemporary Arab Studies.
Prior to joining Silatech in 2011, between 2007 and 2010 he served as the second dean of the Dubai School of Government (DSG), now known as Mohammed bin Rashid School of Government. DSG is a graduate school of public policy and international affairs. In late-2010, four out of the nine faculty members quit. This led to the end of Yousef's single term as Dean. DSG lost its academic accreditation and its Harvard affiliation.
During this period and up till present, Yousef has served as Senior Fellow at the Brookings Institution, where he co-founded with James Wolfensohn the Middle East Youth Initiative, an applied research and policy program.
