Elena Fiddian-Qasmiyeh

Elena Fiddian-Qasmiyeh is a Lecturer at the Department of Geography at University College London. Elena's research focuses on the intersections between gender, generation and religion in contexts of displacement and statelessness with a particular regional focus on the Middle East and North Africa. Drawing on a critical theoretical perspective my work contributes to key debates surrounding refugees’ experiences of conflict-induced displacement, the nature of refugee-donor relations, and both North-South and South-South humanitarian responses to forced migration. My current research examines the gendered nature and implications of local faith communities’ responses to displacement from Syria.

Keywords: Forced migration; educational migration; Middle Eastern and North African migrants to and in Cuba; refugees in Cuba; Transculturation/Fernando Ortiz; Migration and Cuban national identity; gender and generation; religion and migration
