Ainul Fajri is an externally funded Ph.D. candidate through the Indonesia Endowment Funds (LPDP) scholarship from the Government of Republic Indonesia in the Department of Geography, Radboud University. She obtained a Master of Arts in Peace Studies from The Joan B.Kroc School of Peace Studies, University of San Diego, California, the United States under a Fulbright Tsunami Relief Scholarship. Her Ph.D. project is focusing on the experiences of the stateless Rohingya refugees in Indonesia. The research approach is interdisciplinary, combining the socio-legal and geographical approach toward understanding the enduring link between statelessness and refugeeness towards refugees' future aspirations in a country that is not a signatory state to both the 1951 Refugee Convention and its 1967 Protocol; and the 1954 Convention relating to the Status of Stateless Persons and the 1961 Convention on the Reduction of Statelessness.
