Amran Abo Houf holds a Bachelor of Arts in European Studies from Maastricht University and spent a semester abroad at the University of Hong Kong. While pursuing his Master of International Affairs at the Hertie School and doing a semester abroad at the American University in Cairo, he focused on migration policies, minority rights, urbanisation, and international security. His university career has been complemented by working at various NGOs and foundations in the Middle East. Working in the field of advocacy and development, Amran has worked with the Mossawa Center in Haifa and the Rosa-Luxemburg-Stiftung in Ramallah. He is also very interested in the intersection of civil society, postcolonialism and anti-racism, which partly inspired his master’s thesis topic.
