Dalia Abdelhady

Senior Lecturer

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).

•    Forms of solidarity and communal belonging among Syrian refugees
•    The experiences of socio-economic mobility among the children of immigrants
•    The interplay between globalization and nationalism in the shaping women’s public roles
