Presentation of research activity or teaching

Kassar has worked for 23 years on migration issues in general and migrant women in particular. He considers that he was one of the few, if not the first researcher who referred to the autonomous and independent Tunisian migrant women, at a time when this form of migration was considered a taboo since female migration was only represented within the family. Kassar carried out a survey on the migration intentions of Tunisian students, published the book "Regard sur la migration tunisienne". Kassar also carried out a survey in collaboration with the INED-France, on Tunisian women immigrants in France. He has directed several theses about gender as a fundamental variable.
