For over 8 years Mohsin has worked in the international human rights and international affairs arenas, conducting independent research and work in Africa, South Asia, and the Middle East/North Africa region. His work involves writing, research, and field-projects on issues related to Muslim-West relations, international security policy, and cultural exchange. He maintains his own column on international affairs for the Huffington Post. In 2009 Mohsin received the prestigious Fulbright Fellowship Award from the U.S State Department for his arts-diplomacy project designed for over 100 orphans and street children in the developing world. As a Fulbright Scholar, Mohsin led the music and film initiative for street children and drug addicts in Morocco, called Lollipops Crown Music and Arts Diplomacy Initiative. He taught them how to produce music and how to write, direct, and act in their own short films. His project seeks to empower youth, promote pluralism, and catalyze better understanding across social classes, as well as, internationally between the West and East. Mohsin’s work has been featured by the U.S. Institute for Peace, the World Islamic Economic Forum in Malaysia, the Asia Society, and Al Jazeera.
