About me

I am an Associate Professor and a researcher at the Department of Political Science, University of Jijel, Algeria. I am a scholar with a broad and deep interest in conflict studies, peacebuilding, and female empowerment. Currently, I work on a new research project that examines women’s activism, coping strategies, and resilience development in divided societies with a specific focus on Algeria and Yemen. This project illuminates multiple aspects of female bottom-up activism in conflict settings that I am equally sure will be interesting for researchers from various disciplines.

I believe that AGYA membership will be a remarkable turning point on my academic journey.

Joining AGYA provides me with an ideal opportunity to work independently, to explore new perspectives, and to enhance my skills as an independent conflict studies scholar. I am sure that this membership will incite me to contribute to multidisciplinary debates and discussions about my research interest. In addition, the AGYA membership will be the gate to reinforce and to expand my academic network by building new linkages with researchers and academics from various institutions in Germany and Arab countries.
