Dr Lucia ArdoviniLecturer in International Relations (IR Theory)
My research focuses on the intersection of social movements, transnational activism and ideology. Through the study of social movements such as the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood, I investigate the role that identity, religion, ideology and forced displacement play in bringing about social and political change. I also focus on identity politics, looking at how collective identities are challenged by the emergence of individual agency in social movements that are undergoing internal and external transformations.
