Professor Karma Nabulsi teaches at the University Oxford, and researches and writes on 18th and 19th century political thought, and the inalienable rights of the Palestinian people. She directed a civic mobilisation run by Palestinian refugees in 24 counties from 2003-6, and the civic voter registration drive for elections to the PNC, the parliament-in-exile of the Palestinian people, from 2011-2015.
She recently launched ‘The Palestinian Revolution’, an open acess Arabic-English digital teaching and research resource, co-curated and co-edited with Professor A. R. Takriti. Sponsored by the British Academy, it involved scholars, universities, and museums across the global South specialising in anti-colonial and revolutionary histories.
Karma is chair of trustees and co-founder of the HOPING Foundation, which raises awareness for Palestinian refugees, and sponsors art, music, scholarships, and education for young Palestinians in refugee camps across the Middle East.
