Marwa came to Arctic Studies from Middle East Studies. Her PhD research is on comparative Middle East politics, with a focus on civil-military relations in Egypt, Turkey, and Israel. As a columnist on international affairs for Almasry Alyoum, Egypt’s leading independent daily newspaper, she was drawn to shed light on the Arctic as an Emerging Region of potential cooperation and/or conflict. She wrote this column in Arabic here http://www.almasryalyoum.com/news/details/374429 (English translation https://jsis.washington.edu/canada/file/arctic/Arctic%20and%20International%20Relations%20-%20Marwa.pdf.)
Research interests: How the region is implicated in climate change policies, impacted by global security affairs, and influencing international trade relations.
