I have written extensively on gender and women's organizing in the context of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. More recently, I have been involved in a number of collaborative action research projects in Israel-Palestine and the North of Ireland. Some of these projects are context specific, while others are comparative in scope.

Following is a preliminary assortment of published articles and works in progress. Your comments are welcome. You can email me at:
