Dr. Rafeef Ziadah currently holds postdoctoral research fellowship at the University of London, SOAS with the 'Military Mobilities and Mobilising Movements in the Middle East' project with Professor Laleh Khalili. This Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) funded project explores the development of cities, infrastructures, ports and transport in the Middle East and Gulf states. Rafeef holds a PhD in Political Science from York University, Canada (2013) where her research focused on the intersection of the political economy of militarization and new forms of privatized warfare in the Middle East, emphasizing the role of the Canadian state – including the specific position of Canadian arms and security corporations – and the impact of these global structures on Arab and Palestinian communities residing in Canada.
Rafeef’s research interests include labour movements and political economy, multiculturalism and critical race theory, with a particular focus on the Middle East. In her role as Senior Campaigns Officer at British charity War on Want (2010-2013), Rafeef led the organisations research and campaigns on Private Military and Security Companies and corporate complicity in human rights violations in the Occupied Palestinian Territories. She is affiliated with the London Middle East Institute and the SOAS Institute for Palestine Studies
