Rawaa is a researcher and project coordinator at the Human Security pillar at the WANA Institute. She is passionate about her field of work as she believes that in a region that is full of flaming conflicts, tensions, and poverty, there is a growing need to focus on putting the most vulnerable first. As the human being is the corner stone of the development process, working towards providing security in each aspect of the human life is what helps a society thrive. Her field of interest is related to prevention of violent extremism, countering hate speech, and promoting intercultural dialogue especially when it comes to women’s and youth’s roles in the prevention of violent extremism and the promotion of peacebuilding.
