We are pleased to announce the launch of the fourth episode of #political_is_personal podcast entitled: “The Crisis of Statelessness in the Syrian Context — My nationality is a right for me and my children”

In this new episode, our guests discuss the issue of statelessness in Syria, which has been witnessing a remarkable increase in the number of unregistered and stateless children of Syrian mothers, as well as a great diversity of cases and reasons. The guests engage in a discussion about the root causes of the crisis (legally and socially), its implications on women and children; as well as the role of civil society organisations, and some recommendations to combat this growing phenomenon.

About the podcast

“Political Is Personal” is a dialogue from and to the MENA region, where we discuss personal, social, and political issues within the framework of achieving sustainable feminist peace.

This Arabic-language podcast series features feminist experts and activists from the region, who shed light on sensitive and urgent issues from a gender-sensitive perspective, such as life under occupation, online violence against women, the statelessness crisis, and more.

Each episode will take you on a journey of stories, facts, and shocking realities, where you will learn more about the challenges and achievements of women in the Middle East and North Africa, as well as the amazing work that feminists and feminist organisations are doing in the region.

Bullying is any abusive practice or behaviour directed by an individual or group of individuals towards another individual or group. Bullying can be considered a form of harassment that is more frequent and systematic. It aims not only to violate the receiving party, but also to belittle them. Bullying is characterised by being targeted at a person or group of people, while harassment need not be targeted.


Harassment/Taharrush is a group of unwanted abusive practices that are threatening to the recipient by their very nature. Unlike bullying, harassment need not be targeted. It may take place directly or indirectly, so that it creates an atmosphere of distress, heaviness, and insecurity.


Assault is any actual or attempted aggressive act that deliberately violates or threatens the physical space of an individual or group. It is often believed that assault is limited to direct physical violations only, but as a concept it also includes indirect infringement on personal space.


Exploitation occurs when a person or group of people uses their power, status, or positionality for personal benefit through the use of force, duress, violence, coercion, deceit, or trickery that causes direct or indirect harm to another person or group of people, or to public interest.
