She is also Fellow of the British Academy. Her research interests include coping strategies and resilience of refugee youth; tribes and tribalism; nomadic pastoralism and conservation; gender and development; health, illness, and culture.

Chatty has worked with nomadic pastoral groups in Lebanon and Syria since the mid-1970s and extended her research to Oman in 1979. Chatty has continued to be engaged with these communities and advocate for their rights to resist forced settlement. Since 1998 she has worked with refugee youth in situations of prolonged armed conflict in Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, the West Bank and Gaza, Algeria (with Sahrawi refugees) and Iran ( Afghan Hazaras).

Chatty has edited numerous books including: Deterritorialized Youth: Sahrawi and Afghan Refugees at the Margins of the Middle East, Berghahn Books, 2010; Nomadic Societies in the Middle East and North Africa: Facing the 21st Century, Leiden, Brill, 2006; Children of Palestine: Experiencing Forced Migration in the Middle East, Berghahn Books, 2005; and Conservation and Mobile Peoples: Displacement, Forced Settlement and Sustainable Development Berghahn Press, 2002. She is the author of "Displacement and Dispossession in the Modern Middle East Cambridge" University Press, 2010, "From Camel to Truck", White Horse Press, 2013, and "Syria: The Making and Unmaking of a Refuge State", Hurst Publishers, 2018.

Speaking Topics
  • Syria: The Making and Unmaking of a Refuge State

    Syria, ravaged and destroyed today, experienced a prolonged multicultural history long before the term was coined. Home to the two cities, Aleppo and Damascus, that claim to be the oldest continuously inhabited cities in the world, its history is that of origins, from the discovery of the first phonetic alphabet at Ugarit, to conversion of Saul on the road to Damascus, the home of the Umayyads, first Islamic dynasty, the Crusaders and the castles they left behind.

    Syria has been on our radar for centuries. In a broad historical sweep this lecture tells the two-century story of Syria as a place of asylum for Muslims and Christians refugees.

    It articulates the long forgotten forced migration of Muslims from Crete, and from the Balkans, Crimea, and the Caucasus, continuing with the Armenians, Kurds, Palestinians and Iraqis. And it closes with a narration of the tragedy of how Syrians have now become refugees from their own country.

  • The Duty to be Generous

    Challenging Ideas on Asylum for Refugees Until the mid-20th century, the humane response of granting refuge and asylum was a social duty. It was a 'gift' of hospitality to the stranger and the refugee that anticipated a return in kind. Post World War Two, the humanitarian response to refugees fleeing persecution and conflict became formalized in international law best expressed in the 1951 Convention on the Status of Refugees.

    The paradigm shifted from a ‘duty-based’ one to a rights-based mechanism which became main-stream. Once main streamed our own societal 'duty' to be generous became obscured. I argue that we need to shine a new light on our 'duty to be generous'.
