Dr Angelos Sepos
Honorary Research Fellow
I hold a Ph.D (Doctorate) in Politics & International Studies from Cambridge University (2003), an M.Phil in European Studies (with Distinction) from Cambridge University (2000), and a BA. in Political Science & International Studies from Macalester College, U.S. (1999).
Following the completion of my studies, I was a Jean Monnet Fellow at the Robert Schuman Centre for Advanced Studies at the European University Institute in Florence (2003-2004) and Lecturer 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 have a wide range of research interests in the area of EU/European Politics that has drawn significantly from the broader areas of IR, International Political Economy, Comparative Politics and Public Administration: Federalism, European Public Administration, Europeanization, Differentiated Integration, EU as an Empire, EU-Cyprus & Africa Relations, EU Democracy Support, and the Disintegration of Europe.
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.
