Mr Anas Almassri

DRMC Student Fellow

Research Student in The School of Education

 

Anas works on education and peace, particularly on their interplay in such contexts of protracted crisis as that of Palestine. Previously, at Durham’s SGIA, he completed his MSc dissertation on peace practitioner education, exploring how curriculum, assessment, and pedagogy in postgraduate peace studies programs may better contribute to preparing critical peacebuilding professionals. At Georgetown, he completed several original research papers on Palestinian students—their entrepreneurial self-reliance of learning for employability, their voluntary engagement in service-based learning, their political socialization as influenced through their undergraduate study in the U.S., and the structural challenges they face in trying to become successful entrepreneurs. He also researched the use of international scholarships to advance Saudi-American relations and the contribution of American exchange diplomacy to conflict resolution in Palestine.
