Lillian Frost is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Political Science at Virginia Tech and a Max Weber Fellow at the European University Institute for the 2020–21 academic year. She specializes in forced migration, citizenship, and gender issues, particularly in the Arab World. Her first book project examines variations in the sets of rights in law and practice that host states grant to protracted refugee groups over time, focusing particularly on different cases in Jordan. This research draws from over 14 months of fieldwork in Jordan, with funding support from the United States Institute of Peace and the Minerva Research Initiative, Harvard Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs, Fulbright Program, Council of American Overseas Research Centers, Project on Middle East Political Science, Boston Consortium for Arab Region Studies and the George Washington University Institute for Middle East Studies.
