(www.jaffar.nl) He has extensive experience in developing strategic policy for institutions and organizations and has worked in an advisory and consulting role for most of the Dutch government ministries.

Furthermore, Radi worked at Dutch public television and radio as an interviewer of national politicians, artists, scholars and opinion leaders. Radi Suudi is regularly asked to lead debates and chair meetings. He has also since more than thirty years been a frequent commentator in many radio and television programmes on developments in the Middle East, in particular the Palestine- Israel conflict.
