For her PhD thesis, Ghanem-Yazbeck worked on massacres in Algeria during its “black decade” (1991-2000). Through her study, she offered a reflection on the massacre, and on the social fact of this form of “extreme violence” and its political use. She attempted to answer the complex question: What was the meaning behind the practice of massacre?
