Director, Centre for Lebanese Studies
Maha Shuayb is the lead investigator of the Local Engagement Refugee Research Network’s Lebanon Working Group. Since 2012, she has also been the director of the Centre for Lebanese Studies — an independent research centre founded in the United Kingdom in 1983 and affiliated to St. Antony’s College at the University of Oxford. Her research mainly focuses on the sociology and politics of education, particularly equity and equality in education and the implications of the politicization of education particularly on marginalized groups. Over the past eight years, Shuayb has been occupied with the education response to the Syrian refugee crisis in Lebanon. She has headed a number of research studies looking at access and quality of education for refugees and the bottlenecks. Her most recent studies include a comparative longitudinal study between Lebanon, Turkey, Germany and Australia, which examines the impact of status on education provisions for refugees in the four countries. Shuayb has a doctorate from the University of Cambridge.
