Mathilde Zederman will obtain her PhD in politics from the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS, University of London) in 2018, after an MSc in Middle East Politics at SOAS (2013) and an MPhil in political science at the Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales (EHESS, Paris) in 2014. Her thesis examines the politics of exile in France under an authoritarian regime, through the case study of Ben Ali’s Tunisia. She was a visiting research fellow at CERI (Sciences Po) in 2016-2017.

Her research interests include: the politics of the Maghreb and the Middle East, particularly Tunisia; migration and diaspora politics, specifically migrant activism and authoritarianism from afar.

During her fellowship at the European University Institute she intends to pursue her research on Islamist exile politics in Europe through a comparative perspective.

Mathilde has taught theories of international relations at Sciences Po Paris, and worked as teaching assistant for postgraduate classes in the government and politics of North Africa and the political sociology of the state in the contemporary Arab World at PSIA, Sciences Po Paris.
