Research information:

I am a Canadian citizen of Syrian origin. Having lived half of my life in the Middle East and the other half in Canada I gained deep knowledge of both societies. I have been an advocate of cross-cultural diplomacy. Academically, I specialized in comparative foreign policy analysis, comparing Canadian and European Union Foreign policy in the Arab world - particularly democracy promotion and electoral assistance. I have been working as a policy analyst and consultant for more than ten years, then in 2014 I joined the University of Ottawa as a part time professor teaching courses on the Middle East and Arab Politics. However, my passion has always been at the community level which is why I joined the Rotary Club of Ottawa, where I have been championing my #Canadians4Refugees campaign. I published many articles and editorials on Canada's foreign policy in the Middle East and have been a frequent guest on this topic and on the Syrian refugee issue.

My interest is in examining how intellectual property rights or legal frameworks for governance and protection of knowledge have diverse impacts on many spheres, including but not limited to agriculture, food security, biotechnology, biodiversity conservation, biosafety, human rights (access to health, education and benefits of technology/scientific advancements, etc). I am also concerned with the nature of interaction or impact that intellectual property rights have in regard to developmental aspirations of marginalized peoples, especially indigenous and local communities across the globe. Most of my work focus on mapping and understanding the interface of intellectual property and development. I also work within the broader international political relations of power between Africa, indeed, the global south and the global north.
