PhD Topic

Political Instability and its Effects on Parental Approach in Supporting their Children’s Experience and Understanding of the World: The Lebanese Context (preliminary title)

First Year

Brief Description of PhD Topic

My PhD project aims to understand the Lebanese parents’ lived experiences as well as their children’s in the context of the local political and economic instability in Lebanon. Its goal is to explore the parents’ understanding of the country's situation and their understanding in respect to their children’s perception of it. The focus is on human experiences, actions, perceptions and social processes that vary, depending on the unsteady social interactions happening within the unpredictable Lebanese context. A qualitative approach is the most fitting design for this project as it is concerned with process, context, interpretation, meaning or understanding through inductive reasoning.
