Nour Daoud is a PhD candidate at the University of Padova in Italy on a full research scholarship, majoring in Social Sciences: Interaction, Communication, and Cultural Construction. Her dissertation, a multi-layered analysis of intimate partner violence against Syrian refugee women in Jordan, is presently being defended. With a particular focus on the MENA region, Nour’s primary research interests include sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV), intimate partner violence (IPV), forced displacement, and humanitarian refugee protection. In her research work, she employs qualitative research techniques and a variety of theoretical perspectives and analytical tools, including feminist poststructuralism, intersectionality, Foucauldian discourse analysis, and narrative analysis. During her PhD studies, she worked on several empirical research articles that were published in international peer-reviewed professional journals, such as "Factors Influencing the Incidence and Persistence of Intimate Partner Violence Against Syrian Refugee Women in Jordan" for the Journal of Immigrant and Refugee Studies. She also serves as a reviewer for Routledge-Taylor and Francis's Journal of Gender Studies. In addition to her research experience, she has good teaching experience. She is currently an adjunct lecturer at Libera Università Maria SS. Assunta- LUMSA University, where she educates master's level students on gender equality issues. Additionally, she has solid industrial experience in the field of project management. Before starting my academic career, she worked for seven years in humanitarian relief and social service development organizations in Jordan.
