Michalis Moutselos is a postdoctoral fellow at the Department of Socio-cultural Diversity. He received his PhD in Political Science from Princeton University in May 2016. His work examines the determinants of violent and non-violent protest in ethnically diverse neighborhoods of Western Europe. He is particularly interested in the effects of housing policy on grievances, attitudes, local identities and mobilization vis-a-vis the state. Michalis is also a member of the MPI-MMG 'CityDiv' team, which studies local responses to increasing population diversity in French and German cities. He has previously been a visiting researcher at Sciences Po, Paris, and conducted fieldwork research in several social housing estates in France. His research interests also include the electoral behavior and political representation of ethnic and religious minorities in Western Europe and the strategies of boundary-making employed by extreme-right parties.
