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.
