When Yasir Zaidan, a Jackson School doctoral candidate, embarked on his research journey to Sudan, he never anticipated that the peaceful pursuit of knowledge would be disrupted by the chaos of war.

In a University of Washington story published in June 2024 titled, “Navigating Crisis: A Journey from Sudan to Safety,” Yasir shares how as conflict erupted in Sudan in April 2023 his experience transformed into a harrowing tale of survival and resilience, illustrating the unpredictable nature of global events and their far-reaching impacts.
