My current research project is entitled "The rise of female lawyers in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA): The patriarchal order and pressures for reform in state laws in Morocco, Lebanon and Kuwait". My fields of interest are questions related to citizenship, statelessness, and women's civil rights in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) with particular interest in the intersection between law, politics and religion. I focus on comparing female citizenship within the state's family law, nationality law and criminal law in Kuwait, Lebanon, Morocco, Syria and Qatar.
