Saja Taha Al Zoubi, Syrian refugee social scientist

Saja is a Syrian social scientist who is featured in the documentary Science in Exile by Nicole Leghissa. “In Syria I became well-known in my field,” Al Zoubi explains in the film. “The research area of equity – and gender equity in particular – is interpreted as having political or ideological motives, which is very dangerous. If you stand by the government, you will be the object of the opposition, and if you show sympathy for the opposition, you will be targeted by the other side.”
