PhD Research

Teia's PhD research employs Qualitative Comparative Analysis (QCA) in a cross-sectional investigation of strain within migrant and host communities in Lebanon and Germany. The objective of this research is to interrogate the points at which social strain, experienced as a result of extraordinary human movement, intersects with increased hostility toward migrants and the impact of this collision on the vulnerability of these communities to ideological influence.
