Social Justice Researcher
Amel is a Social Justice Researcher at Ten Years’ Time, facilitating the Grant Givers’ Programme and working on social justice with a particular focus on racial equity.
Amel graduated with a BSc in Political Economy at King’s College London. Here she took a particular interest in Black intersectional feminism, which informed her thesis on the underrepresentation of Black women in UK Parliament. She explored the ways in which using an intersectional lens can aid policy recommendations to help increase levels of equity. Here it became clear that by applying an intersectional lens and working from the margins to the centre when addressing issues, more equitable solutions can be found for all.
