Class of 2010

Class of 2010

The 2010 World Fellows include a senior advisor to the largest progressive Islamic organization in Indonesia; a leading advocate for drug policy reform in Mexico; a Tunisian pro-democracy proponent who is one of his country’s most successful business entrepreneurs; and a Sudanese diplomat who leads the developing world’s negotiations on climate change. 

“This year’s pool of candidates to the Yale World Fellows Program was the deepest and most talented to date,” said the program’s director, Michael Cappello, M.D., professor of pediatrics, microbial pathogenesis, and public health. “The 2010 Fellows have each demonstrated an extraordinary ability to influence dialogue on issues of national, regional and global significance. We look forward to their engagement with the Yale community.”

Yale President Richard C. Levin expressed his admiration for the 2010 Fellows’ achievements, noting that “over the last nine years, the World Fellows Program has significantly broadened the Yale community’s perspective on international affairs and helped develop the next generation of global leaders.”
