About me

Photograph of the site owner.Hello there! I am Marieke, a self-employed researcher, writer and editor with a PhD in Political Science and a strong background in urban studies and geography, as well as the political economy of the Middle East.

I obtained my MA from the American University of Beirut (AUB), Lebanon. After completing my PhD at Ghent University, Belgium, I returned to Lebanon for a postdoc at the German Orient-Institut Beirut. Over the years, I have worked as part-time faculty at AUB, consultant and project officer.

Last year, I decided to start my own business as a researcher, writer and editor. I live in my home country The Netherlands and am preparing my emigration to Canada.
