Research overview

Dr Frédéric Volpi (Cantab) held positions at the Universities of Sussex and Bristol before joining St Andrews University in 2005. Between 2004 and 2006 Dr. Volpi was an ESRC award holder for a research project on European responses to North African Islamism. Since 2007 he is the coordinator of the research network sponsored by the British Society for Middle Eastern Studies on domination and resistance in the Middle East. Dr Volpi's research focuses on the interaction between Islamism, democratization and civility. He investigated the construction of political Islam in pseudo-democratic contexts in North Africa (Algeria, Morocco) and its implication for European foreign and multicultural policy. Dr Volpi's latest work is an examination of the 'western' social sciences' approaches to political Islam, and their policy implications. He is currently researching the grassroots mode of construction of civility between Muslim and non-Muslim civil society associations in Europe and the Middle East.
