    Personal profile

    Biography

    Andrea Teti is Senior Lecturer in International Relations, 2018/19 Visiting Fellow at the GramsciLab (University of Cagliari), and Visiting Professor at the University of Ghent's Middle East & North Africa Research Group (2018), as well as co-founder and Co-Chair of the Critical Middle East Studies group of the British Society for Middle East Studies. He was previously Principal Investigator for the ArabTransformations Project (2015-16, EU FP7, €2.49m) and held the 2015-16 ACCESS Europe Visiting Fellow at the University of Amsterdam (2015-16). In 2016, he joined the Editorial Board of Middle East Critique, and is incoming Editor.

    Research Interests:

    His research focuses on the politics of democracy promotion in the Euro-Mediterranean area, and several related areas spanning the history and theory of social science. Andrea has published widely in English, Italian and French on democratization, Egyptian politics, knowledge production in Social Science, and political theory (e.g. ConstructivismOrientalism). His analyses are considered leading exemplars of Constructivism and of Poststructuralism in these areas, as well as innovative uses of Critical Discourse Analysis in unpacking EU foreign policy towards the Middle East (201220132015) and influential critiques of orthodox models of Democratization in the region. His account of the so-called 'Area Studies Controversy' is widely cited and features on syllabi worldwide. He is also editor of Hidden Geographies: Informal Power in the Greater Middle East (2014) with Gennaro Gervasio and Luca Anceschi. As Consortium Leader for the Arab Transformations Project, he was responsible overseeing the production of 21 Working Papers, 11 Policy Briefs, singly or jointly authoring a majority of these, and co-authoring an additional two Briefs on behalf of the EU (Perceptions of Democracy, Development and the EU, 2014; Social Cohesion, 2016). The Project also produced a data set of public opinion surveys carried out in late 2014, and a longitudinal database including other major surveys and quantitative indicators. His recent publications focus on analysing the results of the Arab Transformations Project and their implications for various subfields: these publications include a book on The Arab Uprisings in Tunisia, Egypt and Jordan (2017), and articles on corruption (2017), on the role of youth in the Uprisings (2018), and on conceptions of democracy in four Arab countries (2019). Forthcoming work for 2019 includes a co-authored book on EU-MENA relations, as well as an article on Foucault in materiali foucaultiani
