Hadeer El Shafie - DPhil Student

Resource Politics

Jeremy Allouche; Jim Sumberg

Hadeer is currently working on citizenship and collective environmental action in urban areas. She is particularly interested in the relation between individual-level and collective-level motivations to act pro-envrionmentally, and how both levels shape and are shaped by self-perception of citizenship.

Her earlier research looked at the dynamics governing common-pool resource management in developing countries, with a focus on inland fisheries. Prior to joining IDS, Hadeer was a researcher, consultant and a teaching assistant. Hadeer holds a BA in Political Economy and MA in Development (Political Science), both degrees are from the American University in Cairo.
