This chapter focuses on one of the most comprehensive, regional coalition building efforts for nationality reform and citizenship across the Middle East and North Africa (MENA), the Campaign to Reform Arab Women’s Nationality (the nationality campaign). It explores the politics and dynamics of channelling voice through feminist nongovernmental organisations (NGOs), and specifically examines regional and domestic advocacy campaigns and collaborations in the Campaign to Reform Arab Women’s Nationality.

Through the case study, the pathways and possibilities for channeling voice are articulated, as constituted through campaign discourses and ideologies of change. In particular, the analysis focuses on how transnational and local discourses and strategies have been used to build and strengthen regional and local advocacy efforts for women’s nationality rights.
