Rana started reading for her PhD in International Law at the Brussels School of International Studies in 2015. Her research focuses on the standing of state-owned enterprises and acts attributable to a state under the rules of investor-state dispute settlement. She tries to find out how developments in the global political economy put strain on these rules and require changes in the international legal framework for investor-state dispute settlement.
Rana obtained her LL.B. in Lebanese Law at the Lebanese University and her LL.M. in International Business Law at the Catholic University of Lyon.
She has been a teaching assistant for Fundamentals of Dissertation and Research (FDR).
