Dr. Michalis Moutselos, 2016-2020
Michalis Moutselos was a postdoctoral research fellow at the Department of Socio-cultural
Diversity. He received his PhD in Political Science from Princeton
University in May 2016, where he studied the impact of social policy on
violent and non-violent mobilization of persons of migrant origin in
France. His work looked at the political behavior (voting, party
identity, representation), as well as the patterns of violent and
non-violent protest, of migrants and their descendants in Europe. In
addition, Michalis was a member of the MPI-MMG 'CityDiv' team,
which studies responses of political actors to increasing population
diversity in French and German cities. A third stream from his current
research explores the transformation of European politics in the
aftermath of the Eurozone and refugee crises. His work has appeared in
the Journal of European Public Policy, Comparative European Politics and Urban Affairs Review.
