Nada Heddane is a PhD candidate at the Van Vollenhoven Institute for Law, Governance and Society (VVI). She is part of the project Living on the Other Side: A Multidisciplinary Analysis of Migration and Family Law in Morocco, which seeks to understand the family laws that govern the major life events of migrants in Morocco. Nada’s research focuses on the legal rights of West and Central African migrants and how they navigate Moroccan Family Law.

Nada received her BA from l’Ecole de Gouvernance et d’Economie de Rabat (EGE), where she studied political science and international relations. After shifting her interests towards area studies and anthropology, she obtained her MA in North African and Middle Eastern Studies (NAMES) from Al Akhawayn University in Ifrane, Morocco. In her MA thesis, she uses material culture, memory, transnationalism and displacement to examine the materiality aspect of migration. She conducted ethnographic fieldwork with sub-Saharan migrants and refugees in the city of Fez, Morocco, to learn more about the objects they brought with them and the symbolism they carry.
