Stephanie Daher holds a PhD in Political Science and International Relations from the Sant’Anna Advanced School of Studies in Italy, specialized in contentious politics and protest movements in the Middle East and North Africa. She has conducted extensive fieldwork both in Lebanon and Tunisia, researching the connection between emerging “political opportunities” of contentious movements and the resilience of the “politically relevant elites” in power. She has an MA in World Politics and International Relations from the University of Pavia (Italy) and a Bachelors Degree in Law from the Lebanese University. In addition to her aforementioned interests, her wider research interests include security studies, particularly counter-radicalization and social inclusion policies. Currently, she is working as an EU Project Manager at the International Relations Unit of the Police of Turin (Italy).
