Research Summary
In her current PhD project, Areej is researching the identity and belonging of the South Asian migrants families living in Saudi Arabia. 

The study focuses on South Asian (Indian, Pakistani and Bangladeshi) migrant families in Saudi Arabia and particularly first-generation migrant parents and second-generation children aged 18 years old and above. Despite being excluded from citizenship rights, foreign migrant families have managed to live in Saudi Arabia for generations and Indian, Pakistani and Bangladeshi are currently the largest migrant groups in the country. However, there is still little research and data about their life experiences and circumstances in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. This research aims to understand how South Asian parents and their children in Saudi Arabia make sense and articulate their identity and sense of belonging. Recently, new socio-economic and labour market policies announced in 2016 under the Saudi Vision2030, have set out for the first time an extension of citizenship rights to migrants in professional positions. In light of these policy changes, the research will also explore South Asian parents and their children's aspirations and views of the future.
