Michalina Grzelka Researcher, Anthropologist & Ph.D. Candidate
I hold a Master's Degree in Arab & Islamic studies and I am a Ph.D. Candidate in Cultural Anthropology. As a scholar and a published researcher who is passionate about women's rights and disability rights, I developed and taught a graduate course on Human Rights.
During my academic studies and over the course of my career I studied and worked in such Arab countries as Kuwait, Syria, and Tunisia. I have also visited such Middle Eastern states as Jordan, UAE, Oman and Iran. As a freelance consultant, I wrote reports on human rights NGOs operating in the Middle East and North Africa.
My goal is to use my research expertise to promote social and material well-being of people all over the world and to raise awareness of the importance of human rights.
