RHEA Research Seminar w/ Jihane Sliti
HOW DO POLITICAL DISCOURSES ON THE REINTEGRATION OF RETURNEES RELATE TO POLITICIAN’S GENDER, ETHNICITY, RELIGION, AND POLITICAL IDEOLOGY? AND WHAT ROLE DOES MEDIA DISCOURSE PLAY?
With her experience in Journalism and interest in politics and intersectionality, Jihane is currently conducting a PhD research under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Iman Lechkar and Prof. Dr. Karen Celis (Department of Political Science, Vrije Universiteit Brussel). This PhD research will explore how political discourses and media discourses on the reintegration of returnees relate to politician’s gender, ethnicity, religion, and political ideology. The presentation will focus on the first part of her research, which is analyzing media discourses and debates on the reintegration of returnees.
