Rahma Abdulkadir, Research Assistant Professor of Political Science
NYUAD Political Science faculty member Dr. Rahma Abdulkadir, in collaboration with four other scholars from different institutions has been awarded 194,964.00 Euro ~ 274,002.00 USD from the German Foundation for Peace Research for two years for a research project that explores predominant conceptions of transitional justice pertaining to mass violence and gross human rights violations among Somalis in Somalia, Ethiopia’s Somali Region and the Somali diaspora. The key research questions informing this project are: What conceptions do Somalis in Somalia, Ethiopia and the diaspora harbor to address historic and recent violence and how do these relate to Islamic, Somali customary and human rights law? What are the implications of these conceptions and plural legal orders for a place-based approach to transitional justice in protracted conflict?
