 Details about Expertise / Competences / Technologies
My publications record provides strong evidence for my interest in European political and cultural
relations with Turkey and the Mediterranean, as well as religion and politics in the Mediterranean. In the
field of Greek-Turkish relations, among other publications, I have authored “Europe and the Impasse of
Centre-Left Politics in Turkey: Lessons from the Greek Experience”, Journal of Balkan and Near Eastern
Studies, Vol. 12, No. 3, Fall 2010, pp. 259-274 (with Ziya Öniş). On minority rights and identity politics in
Greece and Turkey, my publications include “Redefining the Nation: The Shifting Boundaries of the
‘Other’ in Greece and Turkey”, Middle Eastern Studies, Vol. 47, No. 1, January-February 2011, pp. 189-
204, “Mutations of Turkish Nationalism: From Ulusalcılık to the Ergenekon Affair”, Middle East Policy, Vol.
17, No. 4, Winter 2010, pp. 101-113 (with Irmak Özer), “On the Europeanization of Minority Rights
Protection: Comparing the Cases of Greece and Turkey”, Mediterranean Politics, Vol. 13, No. 1, March
2008, pp. 23-41 and “Türk or Türkiyeli? The Reform of Turkey’s Minority Legislation and the Rediscovery of
Ottomanism”, Middle Eastern Studies, Vol. 43, No. 3, April-May 2007, pp. 423-438. In the subfield of
religion and politics in Southeastern Europe, I authored “Islam and Democratization in Turkey: Secularism
and Trust in a Divided Society”, Democratization, Vol. 16, No. 6, December 2009, pp. 1194-1213 and “The
Orthodox Church and Greek-Turkish Relations: Religion as Source of Rivalry or Conciliation?” in Jeffrey
Haynes (ed.), Religion and Politics in Europe, the Middle East and North Africa (London: Routledge, 2009),
pp. 51-70. Regarding US-Turkey relations, I authored “Friends No More?: The Rise of Anti-American
Nationalism in Turkey”, Middle East Journal, Vol. 64, No. 1, Winter 2010, pp. 51-66.
Numerous other academic articles and book chapters, which appear in my resume, cover themes such as
nationalism, democratization, political Islam and human rights. My current research projects include a
book project on the role of religion in the foreign policy of Turkey, Syria and Iran. I spent two months in
summer 2010 in Damascus, perfecting my Arabic language skills and conducting research on Syrian foreign
policy. I am planning to continue my fieldwork research in summer 2011. In addition, I am working on a
comparative study of pluralism and private higher education in Greece and Turkey. Finally, I am currently
working on a research project which aims to identify the key social, economic and political factors that
led to the Greek economic crisis.
I have been successful in providing foreign policy advice to leading research institutes in the European
Union and the Eastern Mediterranean. Since September 2009 I have been participating in a research
project at the Hellenic Foundation for European and Foreign Policy (ELIAMEP), which focuses on Turkey’s
foreign policy in the Middle East. Between December 2006 and June 2008, I led an EU-funded research
project at the Hellenic Foundation for European and Foreign Policy (ELIAMEP), which focused on Greek-
Turkish cooperation in the field of natural gas and its implications for European energy security. My
research at the German Institute of International and Security Affairs (Stiftung Wissenschaft und Politik-
SWP), Berlin in spring and summer 2006 was funded by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD).
Moreover, my work experience as Research Associate of South East European Studies at Oxford (SEESOX),
St. Antony’s College, University of Oxford, from 2003 to 2005, helped me deepen my knowledge of the
role of Islam within an emerging new European polity and EU-Turkey relations. Throughout my
postgraduate studies I have been a fellow of the A.S. Onassis Public Benefit Foundation.
