Research information:

I look at people's mobility inside and between states. This includes immigration (and related topics like foreign credential recognition), refugees (and statelessness and denationalisation), family reunification, detention, mobility-related technologies (like identity documents), relevant state and international law, colonialism, and historical as well as present barriers to mobility. Beyond this broad subject, I have experience with various aspects of social policy in the Middle East: health (particularly environmental and reproductive health), education (curriculum development), and sustainable development (water, wastewater, solid waste, noise and air quality, and occupational health).

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 research mainly focuses on the ability of post-conflict states to earn legitimacy from their citizens and the implications on the democratization of countries that experience conflict. Second, I focus on the manner in which development aid is provided and the manner in which the global governance system impacts the achievement of developmental results. Finally, I also focuses on the various conflicts in the Middle East.
