- Year of Study:
Paola Zichi is a PhD candidate at the Centre for Gender Studies. She holds a BA and MA degree in Law from the University of Trento (2014).
This doctoral research looks at the history of the principle of self-determination in Palestine during the British Mandate from a feminist legal perspective. In the thesis, I attempt to explore multiple dimensions of collective and individual self-determination drawing on women’s lived experiences of feminist activism, national struggle and anti-colonial resistance.
