thesis / dissertation description
This thesis proposal outlines a research study that centers on collecting displaced Syrian women’s refugee-activist narratives about their goals and challenges in activist organizing. It focuses on a group of displaced Syrian women affiliated with the Syrian Women’s Association in Amman, Jordan. These chapters describe my research goals, provide a literature review of existing scholarship on the subject matter, explore theoretical frameworks for conceptualizing the research study, outline the proposed methodologies for collecting data, discuss its findings and their implications for policy research as well as social theory.
