Présentation des recherches

Her doctoral research is titled "Countering the analytical short circuits in the understanding of gender in terrorism studies and counter-terrorism policies"

The project, through a multi-disciplinary approach, aims at understanding the interplay between gender, terrorism and counter-terrorism, and attempts to achieve a more attuned theoretical conception and discernment of terrorism and political violence. It intends to fill the gaps in the security studies literature by employing a gender lens. Through the analysis of EU, UN, and NATO CT/P-CVE policies, the research unravels the extent to which these consider a gender dimension and it investigates the effects that these policies and strategies have on women at the community level in the cases of Iraq and Mali.
