Dalia Abdelhady

Associate Professor

Dalia Abdelhady (PhD in Sociology, State University of New York at Albany) works with various issues related to migration from and through the Middle East. Following a comparative perspective, her work focuses on the meeting point between individual immigrants (and their communities) and institutions in receiving countries (such as schools, labour markets, media and political policies).

Current Projects 

  • Media portrayals of the 2015 refugee crisis
  • Forms of solidarity and communal belonging among Syrian refugees 
  • The experiences of socio-economic mobility among the children of immigrants
