Hanaa Hassan


I am passionate about combining the social sciences with the Islamic worldview to create relevant solutions for the 21st century.

Having graduated from SOAS, achieving a BSc Economics, I worked for two years as a researcher specialising in the Middle East, with a particular focus on Syria and North Africa. With this postgraduate degree I hope to further specialise in development theory, with a view to later combine this with my pursuit of Islamic studies, to arrive at policy conclusions for the Global South that are rooted in our tradition.

A former television presenter and public speaker, I am also a strong advocate of Muslim women’s involvement in socio-political conversations in the community, regularly writing articles and delivering talks at universities and local events.
