Dr Angelos Sepos

Honorary Research Fellow

Following the completion of my Doctorate in Politics & International Studies at Cambridge University (2003), preceded by an M.Phil in European Studies (Distinction) also from Cambridge, and a BA. in Political Science and International Studies at Macalester College, US , I was a Jean Monnet Fellow at the Robert Schuman Centre for Advanced Studies at the European University Institute in Florence (2003-2004).  I  subsequently held Lectureships positions in EU/European Politics at the European University Cyprus (2004-2005), the University of Cyprus (2005-2006), Newcastle University (2006-2008) and the University of Manchester (2009-2010). 

Between 2011-2015, I was an Assistant Professor in EU/European Politics at Al Akhawayn University in Morocco, and subsequently an Associate Lecturer and Research Fellow at Exeter University (2016-2017) and a Teaching Fellow at the University of Bath (2017-2018). 

I am the author of the monograph titled The Europeanization of Cyprus: Polity, Policies and Politics (Basingstoke: Palgrave Macmillan, 2008) as well as the co-editor (with Kenneth Dyson) of the British Academy funded book Which Europe? The Politics of Differentiated Integration (Basingstoke: Palgrave Macmillan, 2010; republished in 2015). 

I have also published a number of single-authored articles in scientific journals such as the Journal of Political Power, Regional & Federal Studies, Journal of European Integration, and Journal of Southern Europe & the Balkans as well as chapters in edited volumes such as Routledge.

Research interests

My research interests fall in the areas of European Integration, Europeanization, Differentiated Integration in the EU, and Europe as a Global Actor, particularly looking at the EU as an Empire in its internal and external dimensions.  I have recently finalized a project that examined whether and how the EU supports democracy in the developing world.
