Malika Bouziane was a member of the Center for Middle Eastern and North African Politics and Research Associate at the Collaborative Research Center 700 ‘Governance in Areas of Limited Statehood: New Modes of Governance?’ at Freie Universität Berlin from 2008 until 2014.

Her research focused on participation in parliamentary and municipal elections in Jordan with a specific focus on the impact of informal participatory politics on local governance structures and discursive perceptions of state. Since 2008, she has been investigating decentralization in Jordan through the Collaborative Research Center, empirically focusing on the impact of decentralization on participation and governance institutions. Since 2011, she has been researching social unrest and protests in Jordan. Conceptually Bouziane is interested in the concepts of neo-institutionalism, informality, power, and authority, as well as the transformation of state-society relations and unconventional forms of participation.
