Before joining the Economics department, Dr. Hannah Bargawi worked at the Centre for Development Policy and Research at SOAS. She participated in the EU-funded AUGUR project, which utilised a global macroeconomic model to investigate scenarios for Europe and the world in 2030. Dr. Bargawi has been involved in numerous other research and consultancy projects for international agencies such as the Asian Development Bank, the International Labour Organisation and the United Nations Development Program. 

Dr. Bargawi's current research focuses on the changing position, role and pay of both men and women in the labour market in Europe, considering whether or not recent austerity policies have had particularly gendered impacts and what an alternative, gender-equitable macroeconomic framework might look like. This is joint research project with Brussels, think-tank, FEPS.
