I AM A SCHOLAR, POLICY COMMUNICATOR, AND DEVELOPMENT PRACTITIONER INTERESTED IN SOCIAL ACCOUNTABILITY TOOLS AND EVIDENCE-BASED RESEARCH THAT TACKLES DISPLACEMENT AND SECURITY SECTOR GOVERNANCE.
My academic work recognises the idea of the impermanence to marginality or precarity, and lack thereof, and post-refugee status resistance and power struggle in host communities. Using three main methodological approaches (ethnographic fieldwork, visual methods and oral life histories), I interrogate the transformative agency outside camps and after refugee status termination. I embed this inquiry within the discourse of post-conflict building and International refugee law, to position the work in the literature of durable solutions to multiple displacements and protractedness, and thus contribute to the research front on how we theorise and approach integration, identity, resettlement, and refugees’ agency in development and migration studies. Committed to praxis, I seek a progressive, diverse, and transformative approach to life. Through collaborative research and civic advocacy, I strive to create diverse platforms that add significant voice to the (re)presentation of silenced issues in ungoverned spaces and communities outside the realm of the state.
