Elena Fiddian-Qasmiyeh awarded Philip Leverhulme Prize

Dr Elena Fiddian-Qasmiyeh has been awarded a 2015 Philip Leverhulme Prize for her work in relation to experiences of, and responses to, forced migration in the Middle East and North Africa.

These prizes, “recognise the achievement of outstanding researchers whose work has already attracted international recognition and whose future career is exceptionally promising.”

With a value of £100,000, the prize will support Elena’s research on Southern state and civil society responses to displacement from the ongoing Syrian conflict. It will enable her to complete further fieldwork with refugees from Syria in Lebanon, Jordan and Turkey.
