Cherine completed her PhD at Sussex University’s International Relations Department. Her research focuses on the politics of social transformation in the Middle East, with a particular interest in the writings of Antonio Gramsci and Edward Said, as well as the role of organic intellectuals in instigating social change. She has previously held postdoctoral research positions at the Swedish Institute of International Affairs in Stockholm (where she remains an associated fellow), and at the Council for British Research in the Levant’s Kenyon Institute in Jerusalem – where she was also the institute’s Deputy Director. She is the author of The Re-Emergence of the Single State Solution in Palestine/Israel: Countering an Illusion (London, Routledge: March 2015), and of ‘The Single State Alternative in Palestine/Israel’, in a special issue of Conflict, Security and Development which she co-edited with Mandy Turner.
