Dr. Caitlin Procter's current research focusses on the impact of
protracted conflict, violence and displacement on young people in the
Middle East. She earned her DPhil (PhD) in International Development
at St Antony's College, the University of Oxford in March 2019. Funded
by the British Economic and Social Research Council, her doctoral
research in the occupied Palestinian territories studied the ways
young refugees make decisions about their futures under severe
political constraints, specifically considering choices around
education, livelihoods, and migration. During the 2018/19 academic
year, Caitlin was a research fellow at the Centre for Middle Eastern
Studies, Harvard University, where she began postdoctoral field
research investigating the political economy of irregular migration
among Palestinian refugee youth in Gaza, for which she completed eight
months of ethnographic fieldwork. Caitlin will spend the academic year
2019/20 working on her book manuscript, provisionally titled,
'Precarious Politics: the migration networks and trajectories of
Palestinian refugee youth from Gaza to Europe'. Caitlin earned her MA
with distinction in Social Anthropology from the School of Oriental
and African Studies, University of London, and is completing a Diploma
in International Human Rights Law at the University of Nottingham.
Caitlin is the co-founder of an online project on ethnographic
research methods, The New Ethnographer, and is finalizing a research
methods book manuscript titled "The New Ethnographer: Contemporary
Challenges in Ethnographic Research". Committed to applying academic
research to the humanitarian sector, she has worked extensively as a
consultant and advisor with UNHCR, UNRWA, UNICEF and multiple NGOs in
the Middle East. CMES events are open to the public (no registration
required), and off the record. Please note that events may be filmed
