Lalaie Ameeriar’s current research explores the relationship between women’s rights, human rights, and humanitarianism through an analysis of legal protections involving cases of forced marriage and so-called honor killings within Muslim communities in the United Kingdom. This research examines the disjunction between law and community and between human rights and humanitarianism, particularly within discourses regarding women’s rights in marginalized communities.
