Annie Gergi | Editorial Intern | London
As a Lebanese-American, Annie has always been intently interested in Middle Eastern Politics. It is this interest which led her to complete her BA in Middle Eastern Studies at the University of Manchester.
During her degree, she spent a summer interning in Washington D.C. for the Arab American Institute, where she was placed at the Truman National Security Project. Through this role, she was able to research national security issues regarding the region, and help in the process of policy development for the organization.
She is currently completing her Master’s in Gender Studies and Law at SOAS, University of London. She has focused her studies on gender within the Middle East and is currently in the process of completing her dissertation on the construction of masculinities within Lebanon, with a special focus on the Lebanese Civil War.
