Research Interests

My research interests focus on Gender, Politics and Migration in Greece. I have published a monograph on Gender and Identity and since 2006 I have been working on themes like terrorism, cosmopolitanism, globalisation, power assymetries and the fragility of the social contract. I am currently conducting research on migration and refugee issues, the Greek crisis and South European politics.
