My name is Abdalhadi Alijla. I am a researcher, writer, speaker, and consultant specializing in social and political science. With a background in both quantitative and qualitative analysis, I bring a unique perspective to my work. Originally trained as an engineer, I transitioned into the field of political science to pursue my passion for understanding societal and political dynamics. My expertise extends beyond the Middle East and Palestine, although I frequently write, comment, and speak on issues concerning this region. I am committed to exploring diverse research topics and engaging in dialogue on a global scale. As a seasoned academic and trainer, I offer courses on researching the Middle East, dialogue facilitation, and science diplomacy. Additionally, I occasionally provide consultancy services that align with my areas of expertise and experience.

Currently, I am actively engaged in two research projects:

Project 1: Gaza Human Capacity Building.

This project addresses one of the most pressing humanitarian challenges of our time—the aftermath of conflict in Gaza. With a specific focus on educational institutions and academic human and knowledge building, we aim to shed light on the path towards reconstruction and resilience

Project 2: Art and Politics

I delve into the intriguing relationship between art and politics, examining how both state and non-state actors have harnessed the power of art to achieve two crucial objectives: legitimacy and propaganda dissemination.
