It specifically considers the potential challenges posed by the Islamo-nationalist movement Hamas to the internationally sanctioned “Mideast peace process”.

Her expertise is in International Relations Theory, Political Islam, and Politics of the Middle East, U.S. Foreign Policy, Critical Terrorism Studies, Islamic Philosophy, Peace Studies and International Relations/Politics of the Middle East.
