Nadia Elboubkri is a graduate of Temple University where she holds a Bachelor of the Arts in Political Science with a focus on Middle Eastern studies and political economy. Her research interests focus on North Africa, where she studied Islamic law and public law at Universite Mohammed V in Rabat. After being awarded the highly competitive CARAS fellowship, Nadia completed field research in Morocco and Tunisia on women's movements post-Arab Spring. Her research findings have opened discussions on identity politics, human rights, social activism, and women’s rights not only within her immediate academic circle, but globally as well. Nadia has presented her research at the competitive undergraduate Middle Eastern Studies Student Association conference in Qatar, The Global Temple Conference, and the Temple Undergraduate Research Forum. She has also completed a series of papers based on her fieldwork, which analyze women’s movements in the region and the trajectory for social transformation and future activism. Her paper “Arab Women Revolutionaries: A Comparative Case Study of the Role of Women’s Movements in the Moroccan and Tunisian ‘Arab Springs’” was recently awarded Best Paper at the Global Temple Conference, and “Gender Inequality and Social Mobilization in North Africa” is forthcoming in the Georgetown Journal of Middle East Studies. Nadia lives in Washington, D.C.
