It also addresses issues related to migration of Middle Eastern and Muslim women to the West: globalization; transnational migration and gender; social exclusion/inclusion of Muslim women migrants; Islamophobia; identity construction of Muslim women in the West.
These issues are seldom brought together, despite the fact that the Middle East extends to Muslim diasporas abroad. Moreover, in this age of globalisation, identity formation and identity politics cut across regions in new and dynamic ways. Our MA reflects these contemporary realities and tackles gender and transnationalism in an integrated and analytically coherent way.
