Sara Al Khashlok


Sara Al Khashlok, a researcher in Labour Exploitation and Human Rights, joined BIICL in 2024. She holds an MSc in International Migration and Public Policy from the London School of Economics (LSE) and an LLB from King's College London. Her past research has focused on examining the efficacy of legal frameworks in protecting the rights of marginalized communities, particularly in conflict zones. Her master's thesis explored the failure of Iraq's anti-discrimination laws and policies under its 2005 Constitution to protect the rights of Black Iraqis. The research garnered significant acclaim for its exploration of the relationship between race and identity in the Middle East beyond Western-centric boundaries.

Sara's dedication to advancing human rights extends beyond academia. She previously worked as a paralegal at Deighton Pierce Glynn, contributing to research on international humanitarian law violations and advocating for domestic and international accountability in the Middle East. She has also worked directly with Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International.
