Zahra Babar Presents at MESA 2020

MESA 2020 Zahra Babar Panel

On October 6, 2020, Zahra Babar, CIRS Associate Director for Research, participated at a roundtable on “Citizenship and Belonging in the Arabian Peninsula”. The roundtable was held as part of the Middle East Studies Association (MESA) annual conference, which this year took place virtually. Zahra presented on her current research project, which examines contemporary forms of migrants’ labor protest and activism in the Gulf through the lens of labor citizenship. The eight articles presented and discussed at the roundtable are being published as a joint collection in the November 2020 issue of the International Journal of Middle East Studies.
