Dhouha Djerbi is a Ph.D. researcher with the International Relations/Political Science department at the Geneva Graduate Institute, where she is affiliated with its Gender Center. She holds a Master of Public Policy from the Hertie School of Governance and a B.A. in Gender Studies and Psychology from the American University of Paris. Dhouha's research focuses on gendered labor relations within the context of agrarian transformations and rural movements in post-uprising Tunisia. She is particularly interested in the gendered division of labor in contentious settings and how challengers across the gendered labor divide go in and out of claim-making. Grounded in political ethnography, Dhouha's methods involve hands-on experiences, often working on various farms across diverse regions of Tunisia. Her work is published in the Review of African Political Economy and Agrarian South: Journal of Political Economy, where she is an Associate Editor for its Research Bulletin series. Her work has been supported by the Carnegie Corporation of New York/Center for Maghreb Studies, L'Institut de Recherche sur le Maghreb Contemporain, and the Project for Middle East Political Science. She is a member of the Collective of Agrarian Scholar-Activists from the South.
