Engineering the Post-Crisis Era in Latin America and Africa

Nagwan Soliman is an affiliate scholar at Georgetown Institute for Women, Peace and Security. She specializes in women and peace process, political polarization between political movements, and sectarian tensions between Muslims and Christians in the Arab region.

As a Radcliffe fellow, Soliman is working on a research project about engineering transitional periods after the national crises. The main question of the research is, “How have some countries engineered their transitional periods and post-conflict eras?” She will conduct a comparative study of cases from African, Asian, and Latin American contexts.

Soliman, who earned her master’s in political science from Cairo University, has received doctoral fellowships from the European University Institute and the German Institute for International and Security Affairs. She was a Reagan-Fascell Democracy Fellow at the National Endowment for Democracy, a doctoral fellow of the Middle East Directions Programme of the Robert Schuman Centre for Advanced Studies, and a visiting fellow at the Institute of International Studies at the University of California, Berkeley, Freie Universität Berlin, and the University of Amsterdam. Soliman was also a chairperson of the Regional Center for Mediation and Dialogue, in Egypt, and a project manager at the Institut Religioscope, in Fribourg, Switzerland.
