Thesis title:
Economic zones as spatial strategy in Egypt and Tunisia (working title)
Internal Supervisors

PhD Research

Using a spatial analytical lens, my research seeks to explain the differential development of economic zones in Egypt and Tunisia according to specific patterns of territorial specialisation. It prioritises the role of the China and the EU's policy objectives in the promotion of distinct industrial upgrading strategies within Egypt and Tunisia's current zone models.
