I am a PhD researcher at UCLouvain. My dissertation explores the role of external actors during constitution-making, focusing on the Tunisian case. My research lies at the intersection of comparative constitutional law, constitutional legal theory, and socio-legal approaches. I endeavour to use social science methodologies to answer legal questions through empirically-grounded qualitative analysis.
