    " Constitutions play a fundamental role in the regulation of life, yet limited work has been undertaken exploring their construction and impact on the contemporary Middle East.

    With that in mind I am incredibly excited about the establishment of this centre which could have a dramatic impact on not only scholarship on the region but also the everyday performance of law and politics. I am honoured to be listed as a research fellow in such an exciting, timely and prestigious organisation. "


    "It is important that Palestine has established a Constitutional Studies Center at Al Najah University. In a context like Palestine, a center that is solely devoted to the development of the Palestinian constitution, within the framework of human rights, social justice and ensuring that people live in peace and dignity will no doubt provide a strong foundation towards the transition to statehood."
