Giuliana Cacciapuoti

Genuine, thorough, and certified knowledge of Arabic and Arab/Islamic culture and society.

As an expert in Arabic and Islamic studies, I can delve into these cultures to support any industry in exploiting expected as well as unexpected knowledge to act in a globalized and connected world.

I design outreach programs and projects, conduct research, and develop expertise regarding multicultural social patterns of Islamic populations living in Europe and North America.

As an advisor on immigration policies for the Campania Regional Government (2000-2007), I was in charge of a large number of educational projects. I also incorporated those experiences into the public sphere in my academic work in Italy and abroad. At Italian and foreign universities, I support academic and educational projects on multicultural and gender activities, particularly in European or North American contexts where Muslim communities live. This is to help future generations of young Muslim girls balance their lives as natives while maintaining the heritage and traditions of their parents' and grandparents' countries.

I participated in the International Visitor Leadership Program of the United States Department of State.

I was appointed (2009) as the only non-Muslim mentor in the Muslim Leaders of Tomorrow program of the American Society for Muslim Advancement. I am always engaged in Muslim women and girls projects.

I led the Banat el Ghad project at the Università degli Studi di Napoli l’Orientale, and many others; some of them concerning Moroccan Muslim communities, the gender gap in the Italian public sphere, the political and social engagement of Moroccan women in Italian public affairs and politics. I have been cooperating since 2008 with the Canadian Council of Muslim Women (CCMW), and I plan a lot of multicultural and active projects side by side with CCMW’s leader, Halia Hogben.

I published scientific articles and publications on these issues with a high citation rate. I am committed to providing thoughtful, nuanced, and fair insight on North Africa, the Middle East, and Islam, especially for non-Muslim audiences to start up action on marketing and cultural projects.

In the wake of this outreach activity, I published 'Muslim Women: a portrait against stereotypes and clichés' in 2022.

The University of Molise and, in particular, the Department of Humanistic Social and Educational Studies, has awarded me, since January 2024, after passing the competition for qualifications and examinations, the Research Fellowship entitled: "Ilaria Alpi. Fallen for freedom of information: Ilaria Alpi's investigative journalism."

A research based on archive materials in Italian, Arabic, and English, following the acquisition of the Alpi Archive by the Murialdi Foundation at the FNSI headquarters in Rome.
