Dr. Joya's research focuses on the impact of economic globalization on the Middle East and North Africa with a particular focus on Egypt and Syria.

She is currently preparing a manuscript tentatively titled The Political Economy of Egypt under Mubarak: Accumulation by Dispossession, Land Relations and Class Reconfigurations. Since the Arab uprisings of 2010-2011, her research has focused on the popular contestations of the economic and political systems in the MENA region and the role of international financial institutions in the region.
