Andrea Teti is the Director of the Societies Research Cluster at ECIA. He holds an MA (Hons.) and a PhD from the University of St Andrews, and is currently Lecturer in International Relations at the University of Aberdeen. His main research interests and publications focus on European and US democracy-promotion policies in the Middle East, Egyptian politics, Islamist movements, civil society and labour movements. His current work focuses on the relationship between how knowledge is produced, translated into policy, and its results fed back into the production of knowledge. This is also the core focus of the Interdisciplinary Approaches to Violence project, of which he is Co-Director. Mr. Teti also works on labour movements and civil society groups in Egypt, political parties and elections. With Gennaro Gervasio, he is currently analysing authoritarian practices in post-Mubarak Egypt, and the forms of democratic resistance to these across the political spectrum. Previously, Dr. Teti was Lecturer in International Relations at the Universities of Exter and Plymouth, and Visiting Fellow at the University of Turin and at the Anna Lindh Chair of Euro-Mediterranean Studies of the University of Salerno. Mr. Teti is also Joint Director of the Critical Middle East Studies (CMES) working group within the British Society for Middle East Studies.
